Where I live, a city in California, this town used to have many Trailerparks.
They have gotten rid of them, one by one.
THAT is where our homeless come from!
A one-bedroom apartment,in the 1940’s or 1950’s, is $1300 a month!
And that is cheap for here!
A trailer rental, fenced yard,parking place, propane extra, is under $1000!
There are a few, very few, motels left where low income people live as long as they can.
When you have nothing but G.I. Bill or Social Security, you literathave nowhere to live.
You MUST stay in town, because the weather is too cold/rainy anywhere else.

But he had a voice.
And he had thoughts and opinions.
And WP gave him a place to be heard.
And you, Aunt Blabby, were his friend.
And we all respect you for that.
And we are all sorry for the sadness that his passing has brought to you.
God bless both of you.
