Homes for the homeless

You know, as much as I would love to be a part of a serious effort that would really get the chronic homeless off the street, I'm not sure that this is the way to do it. Admitting that there are people who are chronically homeless is the first step toward figuring out how to get them off the street, but giving them places to live on the public's tab can't be the answer. Not unless we're going to house all the people who can't find somewhere to live in the same fashion. This is essentially discrimination with vice being the determining factor. What about all the people that can't afford housing but aren't being a public nuisance by being drunk on the sidwalk all the time? Why don't the single moms get free housing too?
