The Hidden Homeless
http://www.dfw.com/mld/dfw/16513015.htm

The forgotten are always on display along East Lancaster Avenue. Homeless people fill the sidewalks, looking for food, work, drugs or a spot in one of the shelters.

But look deeper into the surrounding overgrown landscape. A hidden world emerges.

1. I know where those places are
Used to live near East Lancaster myself about 20 years ago--the neighborhood's really changed, but even back then you had to make sure to lock everything or it would be stolen. Seems to me the best thing the city could do would be supply some sort of sanitary facilities for them.

3. That would be a simple fix, yet by the time city council debates
this to death, it will not be done for a variety of reasons that are probably inconsequential in the long run.

2. Informative article.
How many other homeless out there have cancer and other terminal diseases that are untreated?

5. How is this any different than the shanty towns around
most Latin American/Indian/African big cities?
