What makes me mad
Now, I could gripe about the Safe Harbors program. They have spent how much money to collect information about homeless people?
I could moan about the stupid waste of time for the people doing the data collection; costs absorbed by agencies, money that could be spent actually helping someone.
But it's the #*^%)# waste of paper! Safe Harbors is about basic information gathering. How much money was wasted with this PR puffery? Who ordered this thing? They need to come down to Operation Nightwatch and stuff newsletters printed at Kinkos and think about the $25 a month some widow sends to pay for basic shelter for a stranger, because she feels bad about the homeless in our community.
Nightwatch is struggling to close a $90,000 gap in our budget for 2008. Less that 5% of our budget comes from government sources.
HOW MUCH MONEY DID THEY SPEND ON THIS DRIVEL?
