LITERATURE & REALITY?: Life Imitates Art?

Shades of The Road, Blind, and so many apocalyptic and disaster aftermath novels: More Squatters Call Foreclosures Home.

Now there’s something to this that could have been good, could have worked, like not forcing the real owners to leave to become homeless themselves, or groups working with banks and realtors to maintain the larger buildings and homes for the homeless rather than just moving people in on someone else’s misfortune. I especially like this:

MIAMI – When the woman who calls herself Queen Omega moved into a three-bedroom house here last December, she introduced herself to the neighbors, signed contracts for electricity and water and ordered an Internet connection.

What she did not tell anyone was that she had no legal right to be in the home.

An internet connection?
