U.S. Cities Addressing Homelessness with One-Way Tickets out of Town

This is a long and important read by the Guardian's Outside in America team: Bussed Out: How America Moves Its Homeless. I strongly encourage you to bookmark it for when you have time to settle in and read the whole thing.

Part of the reason it's so critical, troublingly, is because the tax bill just passed by the Republicans is merely one piece of the onslaught they are going to wreak on the remaining shreds of the social safety net. Fewer social services will inevitably mean an increase in homelessness.

Which means we need to find meaningful solutions. One-way bus tickets out of town ain't among them.
