    Another large segment of the homeless--about one-third--consists of
    alcoholics and drug addicts.  Most of them are what we once called tramps
    and hoboes.  They have become highly visible since the abolition of va-
    grancy ordinances.
        The rest of the homeless includes husbandless women with children and
    people with a temporary problem of housing or income.  The number of home-
    less who are normal, employable people is a small minority.

    In other words, nutcases, druggies, slut women who got knocked up and tramps.
