NIMBYs win battle against dirty homeless people

First on 12: Neighborhood wins “war” to keep homeless vets off their street.

“You know,” said Susan Chick. “That’s not who you want living in your front yard.”

Somebody is building, gasp, a housing complex for homeless veterans near the VA hospital. So the neighborhood got the convenient entrance to a housing project scrapped, leaving the residents with a much longer distance to get to the VA hospital.

“The veterans benefit and the residents benefit. I’m happy,” said Catherine with a smile. “I may even take a vacation behind all of this.”

Wipe that smug grin off your face and go on your fucking vacation already. The veterans got no benefit from this – just an inconvenient gate that makes their trip to the hospital more difficult. What you got was them walking through a different neighborhood.

I don’t know how somebody could do something so blatantly narcissistic, obtuse and uncharitable yet smile and act proud of it in the news. What arrogance.
