BoingBoing shows its conscience re: "hobo"

Last night I was kind of bugged by the way some people in BoingBoing's comment thread were using American anti-homeless language to denigrate squatters in the famous Mozambique hotel.

Maybe someone over there was bugged too, because here's a thoughtful post about the influence of a kids' show on increasing contemptuous use of the word "hobo".

Mixed thoughts in their comment thread this time. Some icky, some not.
