An exercise in homelessness.
I’m sorry these two days are late, but I worked a couple of side jobs the last two nights—and on top of sneaking in and out of camp, riding the bus, and standing on my street corners as long as possible, it made for a couple of very long days. In fact, Friday night I got only five hours of sleep, if you can call it that. I’m still not used to this hard ground.
As I’m writing this, I can sense some of you rolling your eyes all the way back into your head (they’re making sounds almost like a slot machine). You’re thinking, “I knew it! I knew he’d sell out!—He’s working, and the homeless are lazy—they don’t work!”

Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police – In my June 9th report I mentioned that I tried to add 8 police officer positions for 2014 (4 in the 3rd qtr./4 in the 4th qtr.). That effort failed in a 6-6 tie vote in which Mayor McMillan voted “no” to kill the amendment.
It initially appeared the cost might have made a possible vote difference at almost $228,000 to add these officers. I made another effort to add officers by requesting five (5) positions in the 4th qtr. of the 2014 budget. The cost was reduced by almost half to $115,070 and I hoped that might sway a vote for support. «Read the rest of this article»
