14. You are always out there on the battle front.
Thank you for all the information you dig up and pass on. I wish progressives were much more progressive when it came to these types of things.

I once heard, on public radio, about an "Alternative" to low income housing. One city, I forget which one, has rules in place where if you own apartment complexes with x-amount of apartments that so many must be set aside for low income housing people. From an outside perspective I thought this sounded really like a good thing. Why segregate poor from everyone else? We are all the same and should be treated as such. The people living ion those apartments with laundry facilities, pools, etc....got all the benefits at the same cost of government housing places. What do you think of an idea like that? Better, of course, is if everyone was entitled to a roof over their head and did not have to pay with their humanity to get it.

I am glad you keep bringing things like this into the light. Keep up the great job.
