Actions speak louder than shouts

Dear Brian Eller,

It was with mounting anger that I read your hate-filled, overly judgmental letter about the homeless. Have you ever stopped to think that the vast population of homeless in this area are mentally ill? Or that maybe, some of those Vietnam veterans who fought for this country, and have been fighting for their rights as veterans, have been reduced to panhandling?

Other cities dump thier homeless here too, sending them here with a one-way bus ticket.
