Homelessness is not a game

I just love these folks who choose to be homeless for a book or some benign reason such as a saving money for a three month trip.

This self-imposed homelessness became a game for this kid in California. Unless I am missing something, most people who are homeless do not opt for this status. Life circumstances and other choices land the average homeless person on the street without shelter, food, or a group of COWORKERS who are taking bets as to how long this game will last.

At any point, this game could have ended. I think it is insulting to the folks who are out in the cold with no options to give Bussell a feature story. I guess the LA times has grown bored covering real homeless people.

Andy Bussell is a dumbass.
