Studies in liberal governance: As

Studies in liberal governance: As predicted by Mark Helprin, the “homeless” have made a major comeback since the inauguration of a Republican president. In New Haven, the homeless now are allowed to pitch their tents on the New Haven green in the middle of downtown. The green has been the traditional center of town since its founding in the seventeenth century. Now the liberal powers-that-be suck their thumbs as they try to figure out whether anything can be done to resolve this highly complex issue. In short, as reported in the Yale Daily News story“In city on the Green, no simple answers,” the answer is, well, “no.”
This is of course not an isolated phenomenon. Today’s New York Times carries a similar story, “New York’s homeless, back out in the open.” Can the squeegee men be far behind?
