One more formerly wonderful public facility now abandoned to the vagrants. Parks, libraries, downtown sidewalks, creeks, waterfront, railroad right of ways - a lot of public real estate already abandoned to this population group. C'mon voters . This has gone much too far, much too far. Make this a 2019 campaign issue. Bring in new people who will push to seek solutions and have their backs then they move the law into new territory.

Factotum, the redesign of the library, including a large, dedicated space for children, and the mysterious removal of a lot of the books, are separate issues from the problem of vagrants. Maybe you didn't notice the vagrants before, but they were there, snoozing downstairs in what is now a lively children's area.

There is hardly any staff left at the Library, it is a hollow shell of its former self. They took out all the reference stacks, the chairs, the busy information desks. Mainly it is vagrants using the free computers. I hope the downstairs children's library is still okay. But that is a very poor statement too, they had to isolate it from the rest of the upstairs lbrary to keep the kids safe from the riff raff that now parks there, and now threatening those who have to run interference to this increasingly violent street life. This indeed is genuinely sad - what used to be a place for discovery and curiosity is one more scrap heap taken over by vagrants at the expense of resident taxpayers. We have defined the extent of the problem, ACLU and our weak police and city council have sabotaged any attempt to retake this city for its property taxpayer owners and residents. Despair now belongs to those of us who want our city and its public benefit functions back. Despair no longer defines the armies of vagrants who have systematically destroyed the quality of public life down town. How did this happen in such a short time - from the 1970's Fig Tree to every park and public building to the entire downtown and now all public parking lots and free style street camping. Dystopian. If we can get rid of this mess, who can?
