The Supreme Court decision (and Herald support of it) concerning eviction 
of public housing residents is absurd ("A win for public housing," March 
27).  An elderly man should be evicted because his caretaker possessed 
drugs?  Guilt by association seems un-American.

You say "those who must live in public housing have every right to live in 
a safe environment too".  Is this only a good policy for low-income housing 
residents?  In order to provide middle-income neighborhoods with a "safe 
environment", shouldn't homeowners with government loans be evicted if a 
guest brings drugs in their house without their knowledge?
