Econintersect: There are people that you see during daylight hours but they disappear when the sun goes down. They aren’t seen in any of our neighborhoods; they aren’t found in cheap motels or homeless shelters. They disappear into tents, cars and old trucks and other makeshift shelters. Millions of these are children. In case you missed the 60 Minutes episode with Scott Pelley, it is shown after the continuation break. See the story of the children of the 21st century Hoovervilles. Pictured is Ariel Metzger, 15, a Florida girl who lives in a truck with her 13-year old brother.
