The homeless

Thank you for the news article "Homelessness Defies Both Parties," Aug. 19. This brief, well-written outline of the tragic condition and tremendous social challenge is most enlightening.

After watching both major parties' national conventions and seemingly endless commentary thereon, I think that broadcast journalist Katie Curic's response to this American political ritual is the most succinct and appropriate to the situation the author describes.
