In a nation of 300 million winners, we learned that the number of losers is creeping dangerously close to a million! When the US Census counted the notoriously tough to enumerate hobos their population almost hit the million mark! One-third unlucky,one-third nuts and one-third lazy was the formula suggested by The Wee Study, an international Thunk Tink that studies all questions great and small.
King of the Hoboes, Hobo Joe questioned the numbers: "There's a lot more than a mill out there in homeless land! Count the characters couch-surfing, the beachcombers sand-sleeping and the 24-7 subway snorers and you're way over a million! As to the proportions,that's just the breakdown of the general cross section of humanity.It has nothing to do with the homeless specifically.
"RWR is the reason there are so many homeless since homelessness really is about houselessness. There are simply not enough houses for the number of people since Reagan ended federal involvement in homebuilding. Add to RWR,two Bushes and you got a partridge without a pear tree to live in!" according to Homelessness Can Be A Habit Spokesperson, Meryl Street.
