Some thoughts on the homeless

Some thoughts on the homeless

First, this is awesome if you don’t have a car or are otherwise inclined to need it. A “cargo home tricycle”: http://www.fastcoexist.com/3033359/this-cargo-bike-hides-a-tiny-homeless-shelter It also plays into something else I’ve been pondering recently: homelessness is still a major issue.
