Buy a Vowel
In Houston, a new ordinance for libraries outlaws sleeping on tables, eating, bathing in the restrooms, and "offensive bodily hygiene that constitutes a nuisance to others." After all, libraries are for reading, right? Not to liberals, who are calling the rules an assault on the homeless "community." San Francisco, of all places, recently banned public defecation, and there were similar howls of outrage from the compassionate set. These self-described "community" advocates need to buy a vowel and realize that helping the homeless is not the same as benignly allowing them to be public nuisances on the fringes of society.
