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.

As Ms. Curic states, "You can't eat balloons." Robert R. Campbell, Long Beach, Calif.
