Venice Homeless Committee Passes Motion To Regulate Street Donations

Here, the VNC Homeless committee seems to disapprove of the food services listed on our front page. I suppose sometimes we forget, helping poor hungry people just attracts more. There must be a lot of them.

VENICE - In a 4-2-0 vote, the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) Homeless Committee passed a motion Tuesday that hopes to regulate street donations.

Homelessness, crime, Bonin did not cause these problems. He made promises, like all political leaders do, and some of them went to sh*t...oh, that never happens. Uh...Pandemic? Uh...poor people camps swarming any available outdoor space? It looks to me, and I am a cynic, that these problems won't be resolved. Fairness and accuracy are in retreat. IDGAF has become the national battle cry, I am entitled to slander and lie about any culture war issues like I breathe the truth, while handwaving wildly about victimhood with role playing aerobics. You would have to go to another country, where they GAF, to see everyone taken care of in a socialist society. But the days still turn and the future starts now.

Just learned of Fred Dewey's passing. When my wife and I visited LA in 2006, he invited us out for coffee one morning with Philomene Long, an encounter I've always cherished. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-bKiMXQJaBNI/T9qlXFDZygI/AAAAAAAAA6Q/n-KyXelOgh8/w497-h373/2012-06-14?fbclid=IwAR3Njl5vMM12XBuFgiCNtrO9iWm-iwJkXdS8JclwhOzJwgWfdWNCojQjjU4
