This past Tuesday, the Department of Housing and Urban Development released some startling figures: from 2005 through 2007, the number of people living in homeless shelters and on the streets dropped from 175,914 to 123,833, almost 30%. As Rachel L. Swarns notes in her Times article, the numbers are most likely the result of a policy supported by the current administration to end "chronic homelessness" among disabled and drug-abusing citizens.
