Gonzaga’s Homeless Camp?


Good morning, Netizens...


It just goes to show you where everyone's priorities are. According to the talking heads of the local news organizations, Gonzaga students who were temporarily staying in the “tent city” in front of the Kennel in preparation for the big game with Brigham Young University coming up tomorrow night were told they could not stay in their tents until 7:00 AM this morning due to the cold weather.


Meanwhile in other areas of our Fair City, the warming centers set aside for the homeless have not been opened. Say, now there's an idea waiting to happen. The former tent city which was created by the homeless beneath the freeway was closed and its tents removed because they were in violation of city laws. An enterprising homeless person could set up a tent in front of the Kennel and probably could get away with it so long as they could convince anyone they were Gonzaga students.


Providing it is after 7:00 AM, that is.
