County Supervisors and the Plight of the Homeless

June 22, 1986

Hey little guy--sorry if you have to go to bed hungry again tonight! Real sorry! But the Orange County supervisors just didn't have the time to hear about you and your problems.

They had been sitting in those great big comfortable chairs in the pleasant air-conditioned hearing room--oh, maybe for half an hour or so--and they got tired real fast of hearing about all these homeless, hungry people who are wandering around Orange County streets.

Not their problem one of them said. "It is everybody's problem" another told the people who had come to give the supervisors information (June 11). The problem belongs to the 26 cities, he said.

Don't hurt too much little guy. The supervisors said something about a committee. If you can just hold on a little longer--until Dad can find a job--and don't get too discouraged when you have to miss so many meals.
