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

Dumpster == Home

Here was the news item:

"Covington firefighters pull a homeless man from a garbage truck (WKRC-TV) A homeless man inside a Covington dumpster nearly winds up getting crushed overnight. "

Covington, Kentucky, is just across the river from Cincinnati. The homeless community, or some part of it, used to live in the back of the U-Haul trucks; the manager (probably former magager) tolerated it until one of the guys set a fire. This was in the mid to late 1990s.

Now apparently, they've moved into dumpsters. What a world.

The news station that covered this story has a blog, which had one entry: "Again?"
