Tribune Covers Sit/Lie Fight

Posted by Matt Davis on Wed, Jun 4, 2008 at 7:29 AM

The paper may have gone weekly, but the Trib's coverage of homeless issues is improving. Perhaps all the reporters over there are getting a taste of what it might be like to live without an income...

“A lot of people recognize it as a civil rights issue. While it’s true that the laws impact homeless folks right now, they’re relevant to everybody. It has a significant impact on people no matter who you are. I think on a human level people will connect with that.”

“This is social cleansing, plain and simple,” Flowers said Monday. “These are economic apartheid policies which criminalize an entire class of people."

GOOD. GOOD. GOOD. I'm excited to read what the Trib's notoriously tolerant readers have to say in the comments.
