Have you heard about the Homeless Problem?

Below, a WONDERFUL video by Shahera Hyatt that presents Nicole, a young homeless Sacramentan, delivering a few words about what the homeless problem really is.

For those who may not know, or can have forgotten, Nicole's paraphrase of Freud is "sometimes a cigar is just a cigar"; this as opposed to cigar being a phallic symbol. Sometimes trash is just trash -- as opposed to, perhaps, stuff that is cruelly left to offend civil society.

Nicole's words seem yet more brilliant every time I hear them.

As people of my generation would say, "You Rock!", Nicole. Please use your keen powers of understanding and persuasion to respond to hateful-to-the-homeless opinion pieces that appear in the Bee [often in the form of Marcos Breton homeless hate screeds] or in SN&R which is averse to discussing homelessness with homeless people since, well, SN&R is so dainty and frightened of homeless people.
