Poor people are still people


In response to the letter titled "Pass the bug spray, please" (March 24-31):

SLO County wouldn't have a homeless problem if there weren't so many greedy people from L.A. making it difficult for those that don't make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, or jacking rents so high that the average person couldn't afford.

I am a SLO native, although I now reside in Sonoma County because here I can afford to buy and live within my means. As for SLO County, dream on … and yes, just because there are "poor" people we do need a shelter, especially for the women and children. Shame on you for the thoughts you have … put yourself in their shoes, I am sure then you would be singing a different tune altogether.
