Indeed, we need to face all candidates for public office with this question
and this threat.  "Decriminalizing poverty and difference" are the bare
_minimum_ we'd better demand of all who would propose to represent us, in
or out of government.

Will Al Gore incorporate elements of the CoH SF Homeless People's Congress
plan to end homelessness into his presidential platform?  Stay tuned!

Keep holding the pols' feet to the fire, Bill!
