L.A.'s homeless

January 13, 2007

Re "Cold comfort on the street," Jan. 7

Thanks for the ongoing articles on downtown L.A.'s mosaic of people who compose the homeless population. Although we often may paint the homeless with a broad brush dipped in prejudice, these articles allow us to see why and how the majority of the homeless end up in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood or Santa Monica, where the majority of homeless services are located. It might be interesting to point out the myriad laws that allow such cities as Beverly Hills, Rancho Palos Verdes and San Marino to oust the homeless from their boundaries.
