MEEKS: I am the homeless

Last week I was greatly disturbed by the news that Columbia, S.C., has passed an ordinance to make homelessness a crime. They are proposing to build a facility that will house about 250 persons outside the city limits for the homeless people who will be picked up by police. They will be confined to that area. One of their problems is that the city has approximately 1,500 homeless people so one wonders what the plan is for the remainder of their homeless population.
