Our New Neighbors

Whenever the homeless problem in Palo Alto becomes an issue, local papers rush to assure readers that the homeless are just like you and me. The inference being that nothing should be done to them--you wouldn't want anything done to you right? According to this article in the Chronicle, San Francisco's homeless problem seems to be responding to less friendly policies. Could a less friendly San Francisco lead to increased homelessness in Palo Alto?

It seems to me that Palo Alto might have a legal case to sue San Francisco if they are responsible for the increase in our homeless and thus the additional costs and decreased profits.

In the past San Francisco complained that other cities were doing this exact thing to them. If a legal remedy were available you'd think San Francisco would've already done that.
