On Skid Row

I linked to it earlier, but the series is now complete, so if you haven't seen it be sure to check out Good Magazine's excellent video series, On Skid Row, in five parts. It is a moving mini-documentary that provides a closer look at some of the different pieces of the puzzle that makes up skid row in Los Angeles: the kids, the drugs, religion, government "solutions," and more. Check it out: Part 1: Introduction Part 2: Kids Part 3: Drugs Part 4: God Part 5: Afterword

"The city government has plans to clean up skid row. They've been reinventing plans for decades. Skid Row is still here. Apparently, solely human solutions are not the answer." - Part 4: God
