The camp has a solar shower, camping toilets and a pump sink. It has a garden, a dining table, a kitchen and common couch area. "The number one thing is we have access to the resources that housed people have because I am housed," Echeverría-Fenn said. She and other housed neighbors work together to take care of the camp garbage, to empty the camp toilets in their apartments, to make sure the camp has clean water.

"So often there are the allegations that homeless people are dirty or don't keep the space clean," Echeverría-Fenn said.

"But the theory, once restricted to the parts of the internet convinced that pop singer Katy Perry is actually child murder victim JonBenét Ramsey, has begun appearing in more mainstream channels. Left-wing political writers, podcasters and netizens are increasingly latching on to the meme that Buttigieg is a spy, an intelligence asset, or a Freemason to further the criticism that the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana, is not what he seems." I'm as frequently annoyed by Mayor Pete as the next Warren Lover, but you guys. STOP IT.

This though, from The Root, about racism under Pete Buttigieg in the South Bend PD, isn't annoying. It's bad.

The religious left is the most active group in American politics. A chart!
