Yeah, remember those guys? I do. I remember someone quoting a line from…I think it was Jonathan Kozol: “The cure for homelessness is housing.”
Well. We know it’s a bit more complicated than that now. But the homeless are still out there, and I recommend this post from Detroitblog, an anonymous site run by a local journalist and urban explorer. He walks the reader through his experience with finding homeless squats in local buildings, complete with pictures.
I wonder if this guy works for one of the local dailies (I strongly suspect he does). And I wonder, again, why I can’t read stuff like this there.
