    Bloomberg's Dept of Homeless Services is instituting a policy by which single people seeking shelter are to be screened to determine if they have family or friends to stay with.  The city has found (ahem) that people find it easier to rely on DHS than couch surf!  If you knew the horror stories from the NYC shelters you would be appalled by this claim.  He just doesn't want to budget any more money to shelter the homeless.  Presumably, they will try to shame people from seeking shelter by making them feel low.  It seems that every day I read a story about how this country becomes more uncivilized in small and large ways.
