Report from the Street

Some years back I met a homeless man who was living across the street from the block I live on.  I've gotten to know him over the years, and he is a reliable source of what is going on "on the street". He now lives in an apartment with the help of Denver's Road Home program. He knows all the players in my neighborhood.

When I spoke to him yesterday, he said that the homeless have moved into the halls and stairwells of his building to get off of the street. They are well aware of the new Unauthorized Camping law. This of course makes it unpleasant for the formerly homeless now living lawfully in these buildings, but they don't complain because they don't want to make waves.

Congratulations Mr. Mayor, problem solved.
