Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

Tenting tonight

100% Chance of rain. Great.
Feel free to join us. We're camping out tonight outside city hall, to bring attention to the stupid way we're dealing with homeless people.
There are over 2,600 people without even basic shelter in Seattle/King County. Actually, the number is much higher, but that's who we found outside in late January. They had no place to go because the shelters are full, and who wants to be institutionalized anyway?
I'm gonna be there with my big old 5 person tent, extra knit hats and gear. Dinner at 6:00 followed by speechifying, singing around the (virtual) campfire, smores (oh, wait, I need a microwave for that, forget it).
Call or write for more info. Rick
