Former San Francisco Mayor Art Agnos is pitching an out-of-the-box solution to the city’s homeless crisis that would get people in need off the streets and onto a ship.
It sounds like a wild idea, but Agnos says these are desperate times.
He wants to turn an old aircraft carrier - the USS Peleliu - into temporary housing for the homeless.
Agnos is floating the mothballed naval carrier as the latest solution to San Francisco’s homeless shelter crisis.
“The USS Peleliu would be a game changer in the debate around homelessness,” said the former mayor. “Having them on a ship is a far better alternative than having them unsanitary and unsafe conditions on the streets of San Francisco.”

Considering the fact that a mothballed supercarrier recently was sold to a scrap yard for one cent, this is a GREAT idea. We should be getting SOME benefit from the trillions of dollars poured down the US military rathole.
