Camp In! The city will provide porta potties!

Hey! Has the city finally decided to provide for the homeless?
If I understand the latest "news" reports from P town, the "no duct tape left behind" law, otherwise known as Leonard's folly has an unintended (I am sure) side benefit:
Folks will be allowed to camp out on the sidewalks along the parade route. The city will even be providing porta potties! Hope the word gets out quickly, as this could be safer, and more hygienically acceptable than the current digs most street people have to deal with. At least for a couple of nights, Portland will be homeless friendly.
