Woe, the irony. Mohanna hopes to create the shelter that L&F wouldn't.

The 10 zillion dollar warehouse.
It's so macabre, it would be funny if it wasn't tragic.

Loaves & Fishes abandoned the warehouse that it rented that was smack dab in the middle of the Loaves & Fishes Mall and Homeless People Tormenting Compound. Why? Because they wanted to bulk up their empire. Why? Because Loaves & Fishes under the "leadership" of Libby Fernandez is wholly in the business of bureaucracy maintenance. It's a closed loop. A loopy closed loop that exists only to exist to exist. It's a bureaucracy to self feed that bureaucracy that is all that there is. It is a madhouse, a Looneyvillle run by crappy people.

The Loaves & Fishes Grand Wasters of Money spent over $1.5 million to build their fancy schmancy heavy-security new warehouse/Welcoming-Your-Donation Center/Administraitors' Offices & Spa.

So, what is to become of the abandoned warehouse in the very middle of the L&F Maul? It is to become a homeless shelter, very possibly.

But it won't have anything to do with crappo Loaves & Fishes. [Yea!] It is Mo Mohanna, owner of the abandoned warehouse, swooping in like a majestic big beautiful bird, who hopes to create the new shelter. He's a true Angel of Mercy.

At the end of an article in the Sac Bee a week ago, "Sacramento training program helps homeless women," is says this:
The ceremony [for women graduating from the Empowerment Program] was held in an empty warehouse decorated with crepe paper and clusters of violet and silver balloons. About 200 of the graduates' friends and family members attended.

Downtown businessman Moe Mohanna owns the warehouse and the building next door in which Women's Empowerment is housed. He also volunteers as a mentor in the program and described picking weeds out of his students' hair who had slept beside the American River before coming to class.

Mohanna has confidence in the program's participants. "If you get up, you wash your face in that cold river water, and you walk all the way here, you can do it," he said. He hopes to turn the warehouse into a homeless shelter this winter.
What a joy that Mohanna, a man of compassion, can mentor women in a space where, just across the street, women with hearts of basalt spin their webs of woe.

More Homeless Hate from Marcos Breton

There was a long spell a handful of years ago when Marcos Breton said something so fully ridiculous in one of his hateful screeds against homeless folk that it appeared to be very apparent he had been taken off the Homeless Beat by his superiors. Unhappily, after a few months, Breton was again writing disparaging columns about homeless folk

In today's Bee [3/5/17], Breton has written one of his longest columns. Online, it is titled "The price downtown Sacramento is paying for Mayor Steinberg’s homeless crusade
"
Read more here: http://www.sacbee.com/news/local/news-columns-blogs/marcos-breton/#storylink= It goes on for days. The message, essentially, is this: Homeless people poop; they're getting a great deal of what they want from the overmuch-helpful mayor; and business people proximate to Chavez Park are made miserable by the forever-disgusting homeless that are there in great number.

O.K. Let's get into all this a bit. Except in Breton's mind, homeless pe…

Allen Warren, hero of the homeless. Jeff Harris, misanthrope.

Councilman Allen Warren did something controversial -- that should never be controversial -- at Tuesday's Sacramento City Council meeting. He proposed that there should be a moratorium in some places in the city, allowing homeless folk to camp. This, according to an excellent piece in today's [1/12/17] Bee -- titled "Warren seeks temporary OK for camping in the city" -- written by the always-splendid reporter-extraordinaire Ryan Lillis.

What a wild idea! Instead of having things as they now are, which effectively disallows homeless people to exist, Warren would like for some places to be designated that would allow camping.

Councilman Jeff Harris, in sharp contrast to Warren, said at the meeting, that he "would never support losing our camping ordinance."

Quoting the article ...
"I'm not sure (Warren) has analyzed the situation thoroughly," Harris said. "I have to say I feel the camping ordinance is a management tool. It gives the police…

The first-person dimension of homeless Sacramentans suffering from Schizophrenia

"Disabilities and dysfunction process from having been shunned and denied access to needed opportunitites and networks of support."
~ the brothers Lysaker in Schizophrenia and the Fate of the Self What is schizophrenia? How many are homeless Sacramentans?

Perhaps 15% of the Sacramento homeless population suffers from schizophrenia. The percentage is difficult to determine for many reasons that branch from both the fuzzy definition of the malady and that many people within the homeless community who have the illness (1) are in denial and are undiagnosed and (2) have the illness as a diagnosis only – the disability can be faked by people who are successful claimants of social security and other benefits.

What is schizophrenia? One webspace gives us this definition: The most chronic and disabling of the severe mental disorders. Typically develops in the late teens or early twenties. The overt symptoms are hallucinations (hearing voices, seeing visions), delusions (false beliefs ab…
