Homeless

Homeless

: The New York Post and The New York Times editorial pages almost agree that the homless should not be making the New York subway their home after a fire apparently started by one of them caused damage and disruption that will take months or even years to fix. The Post started it in an editorial:

Let’s face it: Some subway-station bum starts a fire, probably to warm his tootsies, and subway riders suffer for years.

He’s culpable, of course, even if he is crazy as a loon.

But blame for this fiasco also must accrue to those who have made the notion that “homelessness” is just an “alternative lifestyle” into public policy
