Re: “A Ban on Sitting?

As usual, an article on homeless people using public space brings out the spitting, venomous rage of online readers. The proposed law wouldn't ban harassment or public drinking; those things are already illegal. It just makes a false promise of being able to make poverty go away, as did the Public Commons law before it. The solutions proposed in the above comments are unusually honest: purging the homeless from cities and privatizing sidewalks. Hey, there are days I'd like to purge the cities of people who call the homeless "losers" and propose privatizing all public space--but we're stuck with people we don't like, aren't we? That's called "living in a city."
