I hope Billy Joel sues them.

When I leave coffee grounds for a few weeks in my coffee maker, stuff grows on it. I don't think it's sanitary just because you don't put sugar or milk in it. Similarly, I have a cup I use at work only for water, but I wash it out about once a week. It gets gross if I don't. Just wash your cup in the bathroom already.

What's the point of these fake SPD tweets? I'm not for or by the SPD, but these are just dumb, and there are already lots of real life examples of things that make the SPD look bad.

I know I must be missing something here because I'm only skimming this topic thread, but...shouldn't people be FIRST trying to get SPU to change it's non-discrimination policy to include protections for lgbtq people? It seems odd to try to get a lgbtq group going when their very policies don't offer protections for said group to exist at SPU.

I don't know if this information is suppose to make me feel happy, or glad, that less homeless people are being counted, one night out of 365 nights in a year. As number 3 stated, what about the jungle? As people are being harassed more and more simply for being homeless in this city, because they are reminder that maybe we are not be able to end homelessnes, wouldn't it make sense that they are going to areas outside the city? We wanna pretend that we are somehow making progress toward what I feel is an unrealistic goal. The ten year plan to end homelessness, now more than half way through, is really the ten year plan to end all evidence of homelessness in the city limits. Sorry for the negativity, but I feel that this is not a meaningful or statistically significant indication of our unrealistic goal to end homelessness.

aaryn,

It's too bad that places have to compete, because I happen to think that the Country Doctor AND the Urban Rest Stop are both very valuable services for people. But I differ with your assessment that people "thrive" in their homelessness, are nothing but lying, thieving bums who annoy you, and shouldn't be rewarded.

I can't control whether you get annoyed by people easily, but I can say, as someone who has worked at the Urban Rest Stop from 2000-2002, that people do not want to be homeless. Sure it appears that there are some who choose this, but there are many who have slipped into homelessness that have gotten out. I don't work there anymore, but I still live downtown, and almost every other day, I see a familiar face of someone I've helped at the Urban Rest Stop, and they are usually in a much better place, and if they recognize me, they are always very grateful for the help they received. The Urban Rest Stop has helped many people who do not fit your narrow assessment of what a homeless person is. So grow up or live a little. Stop making gross generalizations.

Dave
