In a shocking show of hypocrisy, Mary Lou Dickerson - Ballard's self-appointed protector of children has decided that while it isn't ok for kids to play video games, it's perfectly fine for them to have a homeless community living right next door to them.
Mary Lou wants to set up tiny homeless parking cities in Ballard where homeless people can live in their cars and have access to bathrooms. Think of the children, Mary Lou!!
I live near a homeless shelter and I an tell you it is no barrel of laughs. The park near my house is now unsuitable for children. Not because of the homeless people that get in the shelter, but because the ones that get turned away stay close to it. That means discarded needles, shattered glass, screaming, fights and prostitution are all within 50 yards of where I live on a regular basis.
Thanks Mary Lou! Good job! Your priorities are dead on.
(That last part was sarcastic)
