In response to Joe Holleman’s article at Stltoday.com, I’d like to officially give the city of St. Louis the assurance that no one will ever again sleep around 1411 Locust St. in downtown so that they may remove the barricades. With all the power at my command to control human behavior, to make individuals do the next right thing, to control the police department and family services, to insure that hospital social workers don’t refer the very sick to our door. . . . it is done. Go ahead and take down the barricades. Do it because the city’s Transition In Place program will place all these people. Do it because they can come to city homeless services to pick up their keys to their new apartments and not one more shelter bed is needed in the city of St. Louis.
