Perhaps this will not be news to readers in more urban environs, but it was to me out here in the sticks. In this article on WorkingForChange, a recently retired librarian discusses the modern library and the homeless problem. It's a very moving article about society's inability to deal with the chronically homeless in any kind of compassionate or even cost-effective fashion. Rather than simply point fingers, the author suggests some changes that could be made, many of them not terribly expensive. It really makes you wonder why, as a society, we've allowed all this to go on.
