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

How do you spell relief?
Last night we "only" had 180+ people, with three men and two women turned out into the cold April night, Metro ride ticket and Army blanket in hand.
It's a bit of a break, considering in the last two weeks we've had snow, several nights where we were topping 200 homeless men and women, a death in one of the shelters. . . no fun.
Kudos to our staff, for having grace under fire. If you are homeless, don't come to Seattle. We're full, and the mayor may arrest you. Rick
