Ted Shirey, the last of the people arrested Monday at the Seattle homeless
encampment known as Tent City 2, was released tonight with all charges
dismissed.  Judge Judith M. Hightower said (as quoted by SHARE/WHEEL
members who were there), "The City of Seattle can start prosecuting people
for being homeless when it starts providing shelter for all of them."
