GOVERNMENT: SAVING YOU FROM YOURSELF. A Thousand Palms man, tired of being homeless, decided to dig himself a home. His 250 square foot desert dwelling has stairs, shelves, support beams. It even has a patio.

But Riverside County -- in an effort to save this former commercial builder from himself -- has declared the structure "unsafe" and "substandard". They expect to bulldoze it shortly (if they haven't already).

Can't have the rabble starting to do for themselves, you know.
