If you ask any of the homeless men and women who congregate at the Huntridge Circle Park who Gail Sacco is, you'll hear a common refrain: She's an angel.

Fine whine


Las Vegas makes another appearance on 'meanest cities' list; Mayor Goodman resorts to name-calling

The list reads like tour stops for ZZ Top. Or the locations of multiple Hooters franchises. Or campaign stops for a presidential candidate desperate for votes:

Sarasota, Fla.; Lawrence, Kan.; Little Rock, Ark.; Atlanta; and Las Vegas.

But the list is actually none of the above. It is the five cities that are meanest to homeless people, according to the National Coalition for the Homeless and the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty. The Washington, D.C.-based groups released the list on Jan. 11, along with a 161-page report on the criminalization of homelessness in the country.
