The mayor's plan to rid downtown of the homeless

Well, if you can't figure out a way to resolve the homeless issue in Houston, the least you can do, Mayor Parker, is get those folks out of the way of everyone else. You know, out of sight, out of mind. The last thing you want are folks coming downtown for the various festivals in the spring to see homeless people wandering around. Might give those suburbanites the wrong idea and all.

What? You've already thought of that? You mean to tell me you've cooked up a plan to shut down the churches and charitable organizations that provide meals for the homeless?

As those guys in the Guinness commercial would say, "Brilliant!"

So let's get this straight. We're going to issue citations and hit these do-gooders with $2,000 fines if they don't get your permission before handing out the food?

Probably not to much lose with that plan. I doubt most of the homeless folks vote since you have to have an address to do that sort of thing. You figure that most of your liberal core followers will continue to drink the kool aid because you're a lesbian or because they can't be bothered to look at what you actually do rather then what you say.

There may be some citizens of our fair city who have something to say about that this afternoon at 1:30 at City Hall outside council chambers.
