Homeless Ping Pong

Santa Clarita is in a weird sort of ping pong game, with homeless people being the much maligned ball.
No neighborhoods want to host the temporary shelter.
So bus tickets to another location in Los Angeles seemed in order.
This one line appears in the article: ". . .never mind that the CDC {the local non-profit shelter provider) ran a tight ship and never drew many police calls." Read more here.
The *NIMBYs in Santa Clarita want to maintain their housing values (okay, cue the laughter).
They should welcome homeless people, and get the investment bankers out of town!
* NIMBY = "Not In My Back Yard"
