"Steinbeck redux indeed. Joseph Stalin tried to use The Grapes of Wrath as propaganda, ("They say we're Red, what's that?" h. fonda) Finally the trend back towards Hygienic Camps has begun. What a disgrace it took this long. Yes,…"

HOMELESS SHELTERS, HOMELESS CAMPS

Posted on January 11, 2019 at 7:30am 7 Comments

One of the biggest stumbling blocks to dealing with the homeless issue in America are the stereotypes surrounding people on the streets. Often, these stereotypes are divided by political ideology. Right wingers are the people that see the homeless as nothing more than dangerous, filthy perverts who are a threat to their life and neighborhood.  Lefties like myself tend to see homeless people as just being down on their luck in a cruel, neoliberal society that's…

A Good Boy Gone Bad

In the lefty press this week, I've seen a lot of gnashing of teeth around Equador's decision to no longer keep Julian Assange in asylum. Supposedly, this is a great threat to the freedom of the press -- a travesty of justice were Assange to be eventually extradited to the US.

But Bill on Facebook is my second worst habit. I found him on my social network when I was busy doing homeless advocacy, and Bill distinguished himself by being a member…

2018! What could possibly go right?

Posted on January 26, 2018 at 12:08am 7 Comments

Up until now, my motto for this year has been, "2018! What could possibly go wrong?"  In two words: Donald Trump. And so, we collectively have come to expect the worst as normal. And yet today, as I was reading Michael Wolff's Fire and Fury, I actually began to be an optimist.  Let me explain.

Having taken some college courses in Soviet Studies with Steven Cohen,  I…
