In response to the article headed Where do homeless and travellers go during the pandemic. I have a great suggestion for where the homeless, and possibly others, could go after the pandemic. Anyone with an inkling of the exploitation and pollution of pristine places by ginormous cruise liners would be heartily gratified to see all these ships grounded permanently, and I use the word advisedly.
I suggest that they remain grounded, that is, tied to shore, and that they form housing for the homeless (and possibly others) who need it and who currently seem to have little in the way of options.
Once we’ve tied those big polluters up, we could take out all the central cabins and allow light and air to enter the centre of the structure, while affording a wonderful courtyard space for gardens and onsite exercise. Well, it sounds like a good idea to me – what do others think?
