Homeless Encampment Fears City, Oprah

The city is moving people from the so-called tent city.  The residents there, along with homeless advocates, aren’t exactly in love with Oprah. She drew attention to the encampment by airing footage on it and indicating an increase in campers due to the crap economy. Not quite, say homeless advocates: there’s been a homeless problem for quite awhile, a lot of residents have been there since before the economy tanked, and it’s geographic proximity to a food bank makes it attractive.

So, thanks Oprah?  Maybe? Not really.
