Lincoln Lockers

This just seems silly.
The city of Springfield could announce within days a plan for where the Lincoln Library homeless people can keep their possessions, Mayor Tim Davlin said Tuesday.

Davlin said the plan is basically “just installing lockers inside a pod.”

“We’re working out some of the logistics about exactly where it’s going to be put and … more about liability issues,” the mayor said.
I’m all for doing all we can to assist the homeless but this sort of half-measure (one-eighth measure?) seems to me to be a way of avoiding the larger problem. I don’t think this is the kind of solution anyone, including the homeless, is looking for. In fact, it’s not a solution; it’s just…silly.
