    Bench-warmers sought to block homeless

    SAN DIEGO - A community activist thinks a few couch potatoes, strategically placed on sidewalk benches in an upscale shopping district, will keep transients on their feet and on the move.

    Esther Viti, who oversees the donation of public benches for a merchants' association in La Jolla, sent an e-mail to 45 other activists last week asking them to sit in three-hour shifts, no bathroom breaks allowed.................

    It won't change anything.


    My qustion is if he is going to go to such trouble for it.
    why not help out the poor who are making it such an issue?

    I sure hope this guy is required to wear a sign warning others that he's an idiot.
    I wish people like this cared enough to do something about social problems we have instead of trying to go out of there way just to ignore and hide them.
    It reminds me of this bad guy in a punisher comic from a high brow neighborhood who would shoot loiters and a hot dog vender for "ruining" the neighborhood.
