The War With Homelessness:
No one knows how the first homeless person figured out how to access the S.T.O.R.M. Shelters, much less how they all coordinated the mass migration. Those mysteries notwithstanding, Americans woke up one morning to find their cities empty of vagrants. Talking heads debated various theories, and a prominent evangelical theologian had a breakdown, believing he had missed the rapture.
Days later, they returned, Rising to the surface of every major city through a massive mauve grate. The shelters had been built and armed in case of cold war invasion and forgotten. The homeless had returned to clean up their streets.
