Tent City Cambridge MA

Cambridge campers live in a new Tent City surrounded by Harvard University. It is just steps from Harvard's Littauer Center of Public Administration where students learn to be public administrators? This high profile tent city is also steps from Harvard Law School's Gannett House, occupied by the Harvard Law Review. When President Obama was a student at Harvard Law School his colleagues elected him President of the Law Review. High profile public administrators, high profile lawyers and a tent city nearby. Harvard suffered a big loss to their endowment in 2009, losing about $11 billion. Harvard remains the richest university in the United States. Residents at Cambridge Tent City were not available for comment on Harvard's lost billions.

Minus $11 Billion
HMC should reflect on how we manage our money

[The Boston Globe published an editorial about this setting on October 9, 2009. The Cambridge Chronicle complained that the Globe "stole" one of their stories. I have no evidence that anyone saw my video before they published their editorial.]
