  1. The article on the stabbing of a Cathedral parent has me very concerned. Apparently a homeless man who fled into Elysian Park was responsible for the stabbing. He was caught and I hope he receives mental health care, but I live in Highland Park and have noticed a marked increase of homeless living all along the 110 and near Debs Park. Many of these homeless people clearly have drug addictions and suffer from mental problems. We have a serious problem on our hands.
