I've been so preoccupied I forgot to give you all the good news --  
the trial of four SHARE/WHEEL members arrested at last year's Tent City
was supposed to start this last Monday morning, April 26 -- but when
everybody got to court they found that *charges were dismissed*.

We are getting increased media attention as we push for Tent City again
this year.  A local station is doing a half-hour report next week, and I
may make it back from DC in time for the interviews.

I am going to get to meet Tom, and Virginia, and a few other folks from
the list!  At the National Summit on Homelessness -- if there are any
Internet terminals about, maybe we can even keep up a running
commentary. :) 

Tim Harris is going to be on a panel discussing Tent Cities, and he's
met with SHARE and WHEEL to get an earful from our side.  I also have
the entire plane trip to DC to fill in any blanks. :)
