SACRAMENTO HOOVERVILLE MOVE TO STATE FAIRGROUNDS BETTER OR WORSE?

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger said he is moving "tent city" residents (those stuck in a Sacramento Hooverville) to California's State Fairgrounds (Cal-Expo). Will the state treat the people the right way? Will the people of the state help the homeless via a good neighbor, Good Samaritan policy? The plan is for only 3 months. That's not good. The plan calls for a shelter.

Putting all those people under one roof, if that's the plan, is not a good idea. It's dehumanizing. They need detached units. They aren't all likeminded. ("Schwarzenegger Opens California Fairgrounds to Homeless Camp," by Michael B. Marois. Bloomberg. March 25, 2009.)
