In Denver, the city's homeless population of almost 4,000 will get free movie tickets and passes to the zoo or city museums. All just in time for next month's Democratic National Convention.

Critics say the city's rescue groups are trying to hide the homeless as thousands of delegates arrive in town. Security in Denver will be tight. The Democratic national committee says this is a way to make sure the homeless aren't harassed by police or secret service and aren't unknowingly caught up in activities and protests in the area.
