A Really Bad Neighborhood

In a tribute to the free market, evidently a Spokane, Washington, landlord is seeking what may be the most undesirable tenants: convicted sex offenders. notes:
Sex offenders have to live somewhere, she tells the Seattle Times, and it might as well be in her apartments in a downtown area largely populated by empty storefronts, away from residential neighborhoods and in a zero-nonsense security environment. The way that [owner/manager Linda Wolfe-Dawidjan] sees it, she is providing a public service. It seems to be working. As one man affiliated with the Spokane police told the newspaper: "It's kind of nice to have them all in one building."
