12:20:2002 Entry: "Ann : What's Wrong With This Picture?"

What's Wrong With This Picture?

I forgot to mention this tale that Tim told me on Friday. The other day Tim was downtown. Madison has its population of panhandlers just like any city. One approached Tim, asking for money. I don't know if Tim gave him anything, I rather doubt it. But shortly after, he heard a strange ringing sound. He looked around. The panhandler pulled out his cellphone and answered it.

I think we should all give money to panhandlers so that they can pay their cellphone bills, don't you?


It's the same way here in Florida Ann! Would you believe that panhandlers actually get a license to panhandle in Florida?? Like an occupational license! It's totally absurd!! :op

WTF? I think I heard of that. You know, if the state would do something about providing decent jobs at decent wages rather than messing with this bureaucratic red tape...grrr...

I'm not against arresting panhandlers unless they really annoying people, but to actually give them a license? Meanwhile, they penalize people for picking out perfectly usable items in people's trash (I've furnished many a rental that way).

Yikes...where are our priorities? Where is our sense?
