It's tough. I've known homeless people. I talk with them, I've donated time and money. But there's also a part of me that would love to see the Guiliani effect happen to a lot of America's bad areas, like what he did with Time Square. Heck one of the most popular malls in Hollywood used to be a condemned projects area. It's funny though, I meet so many white hipster/artist youth who move to Oakland thinking it's Haight Street 2.0...not realizing things can get pretty gnarly out there.
