I feel the same way the man from Martinez feels about public housing ("Quit sponging off of public housing," Jan. 11).
It should be temporary for people who have fallen into hard times or the elderly who have to live on a very limited income.
I read the recent comments of a 26-year-old being thankful for being able to get out of her present living area. I am hopeful that she is trying to better herself so she can become independent. A 26-year-old is too young to start a life in public housing -- unless I don't know the whole story.
