To paraphrase a circular sent all around Africa "IF YOU COULD MAKE THE LAWS WHAT WOULD YOU DO? HOW WOULD YOU SET ABOUT MAKING THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A HAPPY PLACE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN IT?"
President Elect Barack Obama often said: "America, we can do better than that" on a variety of issues, including homelessness, specifically homeless veterans. Time will tell if he and our other elected officials will "do better than that."
Now that the election is over did not know what to do with this blog. I decided to leave the political stuff and rather than turning this into a general government blog, will stick to the subject of homelessness. With a bit of politics thrown as the mood strikes me.
