There are approximately 79,000 homeless in the state of Texas, but closer to 3,000 in Dallas. I am not downplaying the unfortunate nature of homelessness, but your post paints an inaccurate picture.
We have over 10,000 homeless in San Diego. The weather is always nice so it's not too rough for those sleeping outdoors. It's really quite sad to see.
I oftentimes wonder what our world would have been like had we taken the "war on drugs" money and fed infrastructure, education, the arts, science, etc. Well I guess we know how it turns out when that stuff is NOT considered... :\
