Iraq Veteran Returns to Homelessness

Here’s a story from the NYT about Army veteran Nicole Goodwin coming home to New York, where she ends up on the streets with her 1-year-old daughter. Rejected by the Department of Homeless Services because four women and two small children in a two-bedroom apartment, mixed with an untenable situation between mother and daughter is really not their problem. Meanwhile, Veterans Affairs can only blubber and offer excuses.

Good thing we’ve got compassionate conservatism in charge, I was getting worried.
