We're not lying.
This is really what the Los Angeles Times has said.
With a country in a homeless epidemic and California having the most, Los Angeles is the model for HOW TO HANDLE homeless.
No, it's not a typo. It's not "HOW NOT TO". It's the model...
We truly don't understand how this can be true.
Has no one else taken a trip to Skid Row?
Are we really at the point in our lives were we are praising Mayor Yoga Pants?
He hasn't done anything worth celebrating.
The LA Times truly must've made a mistake. Maybe they meant Louisiana, the other LA.
Or maybe everyone else is just crazy....
“I think there’s actually incredibly strong things happening across California,” said Matthew Doherty, executive director of the United States Interagency Council on Homelessness. “In Los Angeles, there are some of the best permanent supportive housing providers in the country, with some of the most innovative projects, engagement of the public health system directly in the work of homelessness, the city-county partnership... There’s a lot that’s going on there.”
Apparently the logic behind this is has to due with population. Since Los Angeles has the highest population of all the major cities dealing with the homeless; when you divide the total population by the amount of homeless the number is the lowest of all.
It doesn't make any sense to us or anyone else in Los Angeles.
