‘Homelessness in Suburbia’ and Sheen’s Offer of a Sanctuary


Nowhere in Tom Pettepiece’s first-person account on being homeless (“Homeless in Suburbia: A Few Bad Turns, and You’re Sleeping in Your Pickup,” Editorial Page, May 13) does he make mention of looking for work, any kind of work in order to survive. Surely with “10 years of higher education,” he didn’t need help in filling out a job application form and he was capable of doing more than sponging off his friends and whining. A trip to the local Employment Development Department office might have solved all of his problems.
