Tossing Spare Change at the Homeless

OK, give Mayor Dean some credit. At least he's trying to do something to help the homeless. But to Pith, this seems a little too much like an afterthought to assuage liberal guilt. First, Dean rams through the new convention center for downtown businesses, then he asks people to toss some spare change at this little homelessness problem we seem to have developed. Dean's got it backwards. First, he should have rolled out a bold program to create housing, offer services and improve the lives of our burgeoning homeless population. Then maybe we could have tried this Adopt-A-Meter campaign to raise money for a new convention center.
