7-10 Million Homeless in US?!!!

This evening on C-Span, the LA Times had a panel of historians who had written various biographies. I only caught the last part of it. A college professor named Blanche Weisen Cook, who had written about Eleanor Roosevelt and apparently admiringly, made the claim that "7 to 10 million people in this country are homeless" and said that Ronald Reagan is to blame.

A few minutes later she said that all human rights were being eliminated by the current Bush administration.

What I found shocking was not that some rabid, left-wing nutcase of a college professor was insane. I couldn't believe that an entire large room full of people at UCLA and a panel of historians could hear this kind of slanderous garbage without the slightest indication of disagreement. Further, the moderator and the rest of the panel continued to treat her with great respect as a worthy historian whose comments were an accurate reflection of reality.
