It is cold. The ground is hard. Good luck finding a place to go pee in the middle of the might. If you move, will someone take your spot? Is it safe? How many of the folks around you are drunk? Why oh why are there kids out here? How many layers can I wear at one time?
Oh. That’s not just the Rose Parade. That is the reality of sleeping homeless in Los Angeles any night .
