So the city is booting out the homeless from "Hopeville," a makeshift encampment underneath Tucker Boulevard. What to do? Well, consider this:

The St. Louis Business Journal just reported that the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch is running a promotion this summer: from May 23 to August 31, they'll be offering five rooms for a buck each.

Unreal wonders: Does anybody else see a solution here?
