Further majestic equality

Heard there was a nasty crackdown during the past week on people living in vehicles around Hooper Street near California College of the Arts. Just really don't know who that helps or why our tax money was spent to disrupt people's lives that way.

Meanwhile, Jesse of the Dogpatch Howler writes with news of vehicular residence as a precarious but locally legal way of life for aspiring Internet moguls in Palo Alto. Via, originally, the Wall Street Journal. Odd that the WSJ headline is "Palo Alto Struggles with Homeless People Living In Their Cars," because evidently Palo Alto, like San Francisco, has more problematic problems to worry about.

How much worse does our economy have to get before the practice of living in vehicles becomes accepted as substandard housing rather than crime?
