Tent Cities Are Here Again.

While we may have been aware of how dire circumstances are becoming across the country, a new series of stories about tent cities brought home for me the magnitude of the problem.

Oprah's Lisa Ling has a story here.


From the Sacramento Bee.

Mentalfloss rates six tent cities.

Like the old Hoovervilles of the Great Depression, a name for the new cities of homeless is bound to tag those responsible: Bushvilles, Trickledown Towns.
