Oprah’s Tent City Show

It is very sad to see the harm that is being done to people as our economy struggles to right itself and one hopes it does soon.

The show on Oprah actually showed—as much as the tragedy of people on the streets—the giving heart of Sacramentans who are doing so much to help and that is a good thing, though the tent city now growing in the Parkway behind the Blue Diamond plant will cause great harm to the Parkway, probably for years to come, and that is a very bad thing.

The show also failed to present a balanced approach to the homeless situation, focusing only on those who apparently have lost their homes through the current recession, and much of that aspect of it raised more questions than answers.
