    This is both discusting and disturbing. To think that people live down there makes me nauseous. The polution they leave behind is horrible.

    Its almost Census day. I wonder how many real people live like that. I imagine Tent City has a Mayor. I bet there is some sort of tax collection and protective system as any society would have. City council can’t really believe that is they make a law these people will just evaporate. They are people, they have survival instincts.

    The mayor of tent city just a figurehead, they still use the archaic city manager form of government.
