“You know what my favorite part about housing all the homeless is?”
“I don’t know. There’s a lot to choose from. Better health outcomes?”
“Nope.”
“Um…human rights and dignity?”
“Nuh-uh.”
“Ok, lower costs to the taxpayer?”
“You know I don’t give a shit about that, really.”
“All right. Then what?”
“Well, I like the benefits to health and the human rights and whatnot but my favorite part about having formerly homeless people all in housing now is that we don’t have to suffer through the thing where twice a decade some person who fancies themselves as super-clever and amazing writes a letter to the editor about how we should just eat the homeless.”
“Oh. Oh, yeah. You are so right. That is the best reason.”
