The National Coalition for the Homeless unfairly ranked Los Angeles as the "fourth-meanest city" for the homeless (Aug. 6). The past year has, in fact, been a historic watershed for homeless services in Los Angeles. Ten elected officials have formally launched a 10-year plan to end homelessness. Local discretionary funding for homeless services almost doubled. City officials expanded a temporary winter program to a year-round emergency program, adding 860 much-needed beds throughout the city.

The Dome Village homeless shelter in downtown Los Angeles has resolved record-keeping problems that threatened future federal funding for the unique encampment, according to a Los Angeles County agency that monitors homeless shelters. A audit six months ago by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found that the Dome Village had failed to show that tenants were actually homeless before moving in and noted that some residents violated funding rules by staying longer than two years.

Nose-numbing, lip-chapping cold gripped the eastern United States for a second straight day Tuesday, closing schools, delaying trains and actually making workers eager to get into the warm confines of their offices.
