Reagan warned us about vegetables, too. Told us ketchup was just as good, at least for poor kids eating school lunches.
But I guess I'm late with that response, we seem to have migrated into the housing market. Drive around the country roads here and it's amazing how many abandoned houses you see, lots of them nice houses but just empty with the lawn two feet high. 200 yards from me there's an abandoned house, front door is wide open so you can look right through to the back. But it's not one of the nice ones. It was supposed to be auctioned yesterday, and the folks who came for the auction didn't even bother to close the door. The bank is probably hoping it will catch fire and the open door will help maintain a .06 or better draft.
If I were homeless I would just look for one of these abandoned houses, without close neighbors, and move in. A guy I know works for banks, checking out houses with mortgage problems. He was referred to one recently where the bank had heard nothing for 8 months from a previously-good customer. Before going to the house he googled the owner and found out she was 92 and recently dead. When he got to the house, it turned out the old lady's daughter and family had moved in after Momma checked out, and were just living there rent free and happy. And why not? He says it takes 6 to 8 months to foreclose and evict somebody, so when people get hopelessly behind they just stop paying the mortgage and use their payment-free time to pay down other debts, or more likely to buy a new car or better drugs.
