My New Laptop

Just thought I'd show you the Macbook Air 11 that I was able to get because of your wonderful generosity.   Thank you, again, so much!  I am currently in the San Diego Central Library, working on new plans for the blog. :)

Good Morning San Diego



6 cop cars idling for an hour burning up gas, 12 cops paid an average of 30 dollars an hour, all to roust a half dozen homeless people from their sleep at 6:30am. Seems like these resources could have been better spent catching real criminals.  Actually for the 300 to 500 dollars this police action cost, these 6 homeless people could have been put up in a decent hotel for the night.

Remember that these police actions are not done to help the homeless but as a a public relations stunt to show the few complaining constituents, (mostly the land developers looking to get rich by investing in the area), that the police are "doing something about it."

One of San Diego’s Most Successful Homeless Programs Is Out of Money

Thirty-four of the most frequent homeless users of San Diego’s emergency services cost taxpayers and hospitals $4.3 million in responses to 911 calls and other public safety needs in 2010. Take those same people, put them in a house, give them preventative medical care and access to round-the-clock case workers, and the costs drop to $2.2 million in 2013.
