Small blessings: Five Seattle camping spots, one San Francisco condo

After seven years, five households get to live in vehicles in a church parking lot in Seattle.

In other news, a dear childless woman in San Francisco left her condo to "the homeless." But now the city won't even think of letting a homeless person or couple live there. Chron writer Rachel Gordon just rolls over and repeats the Dept of Human Services line that it "can't become a homeless shelter" and therefore has to be sold to be useful. Presumably to spend the money on something more institutional and temporary than an actual unit of housing. Because low-income housing just isn't proper low-income housing unless it involves lots of conduct rules and washable tile surfaces.

Sad old world. I hope that lady's ghost comes back to haunt City Hall.
