LETTER: A place for discussion on homelessness

I just read Andrew Holota’s article: “Attention on homeless is an opportunity.”

I was startled by the objectivity and thoughtfulness of Mr. Holota’s viewpoints about this issue.

Yes, there is a place for discussion between the poles of business greed and self-interest on one extreme and of giving the homeless everything that the “bleeding hearts” would give them.

And yes, too, this is a genuine opportunity to show real leadership (not political sleight-of-hand) on the issue of homelessness. As we used to say in my job: It’s not a problem, it’s a challenge.
