Responses To L.A's Homeless Plan

Readers respond to Los Angeles County's plan to relocate homeless services from downtown to suburban centers.

"The county supervisors must step down from their ivory towers and consider the fact that being homeless does not mean being jobless. Centers need to be located where work is available or public transit is nearby and affordable.

I know it's hard to believe that a country that can afford to declare war on faulty evidence and can afford to occupy another country, perhaps permanently, cannot create an environment in which its own citizens who have jobs, sometimes two jobs, have a safe place to live, but that's 'truthiness' for you."
