Homeless in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

It had to happen sooner or later. I mean, the Coeur d'Alene City Council has always had diversity of sorts. This week, we have topped the heap. The ultimate in democracy. Everywhere in this great country of ours, we have homeless people wandering the streets, looking for a life.

Right here in beautiful downtown Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, we have struck a blow for freedom.

For the very first time in the history of Idaho, and maybe a bunch of other places, we have elected a homeless person to the city council. Coeur d'Alene, I salute you.

As an afterthought, we sincerely hope that Mike Kennedy will find a home soon...It might snow.

And here I thought my rantings about the gentrification and displacement in Coeur d'Alene was falling on deaf ears. It was just that my aim was off, and they were hitting metropolitan Bayview, not CdA. I gotta get a new GPS and better glasses.
