A proposal to allow San Jose’s landlords to evict renters based on an arrest got little support at a recent housing commission meeting.

When it comes to popular support for housing the homeless, there are two types of people: those who want it, and those who want it somewhere else.
San Jose made a bold move to help the homeless by implementing California’s “shelter crisis” code. By most accounts, it appears to be working.
In the South Bay—the actual Super Bowl City—it was “don’t ask don’t tell” when it came to the issue of homelessness.
Making San Jose easier to swallow for Middle America’s diabetic masses shouldn’t involve sanitizing the streets of local color.
