Urban Camouflage?

I took this photo out the window of my car on the way to work.

It shows a mental patient abandoned to the streets (aka the "homeless") pushing a long train of "stuff".

In this case, however, we have the bizarre addition of two trees being added to the mix. These appear to be office plants -- Ficus benjamina.

On Sunday, my local paper had some interesting stories (here's the main one) about the effect of deinstitutionalization and how the mentally ill (both homeless and those in group homes) are actually putting more of a strain on the Medicaid system. I wish it was something that was done in a series, more of an in-depth kind of thing, but either way it was a good, if depressing, read. Those people deserve more than what they get, and we need to find a way to make it affordable without draining Medicaid for them...however, I have no ideas for that department.

Looks like everybody's "going green" these days.
