23. Funny, I was just looking out my window and thinking the same thing...
3 more house on my street went up for sale just this weekend, and there already at least 6 vacant ones. Most of the vacant ones have those notices from the city taped up on their doors. Why can't the government invest in those houses and offer them as AFFORDABLE HOUSING for the homeless? Checking the county web site, there are 112 foreclosures in my zip code alone.

That might be a place to start, contacting our Representatives. I'm pretty sure I've got a good congress critter.

What does anyone else think?

Oh, and by the way, thanks for the OP, happy_liberal.
