Previous p110         It's amazing that such a large group of people can live homeless right in the middle of the city. The city's efforts concerning The Family are all calculated to make them less visible. They aren't going to go away unless the city throws a little bit of money at the situation. I think a million dollars would make a lot of difference. What's a million, it's only about one per cent of Madison's new State Street Art Center.
       Madison once had a YMCA near the capitol square that sheltered a lot of homeless men. The men hanging around the square were unsightly so the city demolished the building. The lot, a great big empty hole, sat there for a number of years. The homeless men hung around someplace else. Big improvement.
