Re “Homeless in Sacramento need a transitional tent city” (Viewpoints, Jan. 12): The whole issue with the homeless is that they are simply professional bums working the system. They enjoy the wide-open spaces so that they can indulge in substance abuse, recycling, theft and so on. Instead of all this gnashing of teeth and hand-wringing, the city needs to continue to enforce the law.
