Chronicles Of Depression 2.0: #353: Tents

Nevada tent cities rise in shadow of casinos

Jodi Royal-Goodwin, Reno’s community reinvestment manager, has seen her city become the poster child for the homeless this summer, but she knows she is not alone.

“They (tent cities) are all over the place,” she says.

“I’ve heard the comparisons to Hooverville, but we are at 8 per cent unemployment here now. Hooverville was 25 per cent unemployment. Heaven help us all if we do get to that point.”

    >”Everyone was drinking or coughing or getting high or talking about getting high.”

    “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” – Galatians 6:7

    Hey, Gekko, I read that too. And I don’t excuse it. They should all summarily OD and leave people who want to be *productive* alone.

    But not ALL of them were frikkin drunks or druggies. Didn’t you notice the family with 4 kids?

  3. Gekko Says:

    “If you can’t feed ’em, don’t breed ’em.”

  4. mikecane Says:

    Where’s that in Bible, Gekko? I recall “Be fruitful and multiply.”

    Of course, you wouldn’t know anything about that part of biology, having no experience.
