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.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.
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.

This just seems silly.
