Fri, 22 Jan 2021 17:25:00 GMT
The Covid-19 pandemic has exposed a basic fact of American life: When people unexpectedly lose work or face unforeseen expenses, they can't pay their rent. What's worse, they often get evicted as a result.

Your boss cut your hours£ Not relevant. Your car needed a $600 repair£ No defense. Your child support check didn't arrive£ Not the landlord's problem. We tell our clients, "The law doesn't care about that." We usually follow up with, "It doesn't seem fair, does it£"

At the end of four years of a presidency in which journalists like me were regularly declared "enemies of the people" and after recovering from Covid-19, I began 2021 wondering how to recover my hope for democracy and sense of faith in the citizens of the United States.
