San Francisco has been called the Paris of the West, but lately, it’s become a nightmare. Rows of tents now line the sidewalks, and the air smells foul. Homelessness is out of control. We discuss Kate’s recent feature on what’s going on in America’s most liberal city.

 

We also cover the following stories:

  • President Trump isn’t happy with media coverage of the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassim Suleimani.
  • The Supreme Court won’t overturn a state court ruling on whether a law banning female toplessness is illegal.
  • Soccer star Megan Rapinoe isn’t happy the Olympics are going apolitical

    Thank you so much for this report on San Francisco’s homeless situation. Like Katrina I have compassion for the individuals in these circumstances. I don’t fool myself to think the solution will be easy, universal, or even completely possible. Still, we can’t turn our backs on our brothers and sisters. If we want to help we must learn as much as we can.

    This podcast nearly exposed a small part of the tip of the iceberg of the problem that is homelessness.

    I don’t want anyone to be homeless. If I give money to a homeless person, I’m helping that person remain homeless. I’m enabling homelessness.

    Severe mental disability and acute chemical addiction surely account for over 80 percent of all homeless. The needle exchange programs are not helping reduce the chemical addiction problem.

    I lived in San Francisco in the 80s. Loved it. The homeless were concentrated in the Civic Center area.

    Some problems don’t have a solution. But I can’t think of any problem besides homelessness that is given so much subsidy, in forms that the subsidizers know will not help reduce the problem.
