Lifting Hurdles as the Homeless Rebound

The New York Times, Charlie LeDuff, December 29, 2004

“The homeless in homeless court are a different breed from the run-of-the-mill transients. They wear red and fuchsia and magenta. Their shoes are polished and their pants have creases. Beards are trimmed, hair combed, eyes clear. After years of sleeping in cars and gutters, suffocating in a plume of smoke and booze, getting kicked around and being ticketed for trolley hopping and vagrancy, finally, the homeless say, they have caught a break.”
