TFP Column: Stop Panhandling

It seems like it was just couple of days ago that I was telling you about an effort of mine going up on the Toledo Free Press website.  Not wait, it was in fact just a couple of days ago that something did.  But as they say on Monty Python's Flying Circus, "... and now for something completely different".

This whole thing started with discussion on 1370 WSPD radio and a piece on the TFP website got me thinking about panhandling in this country.  Little did I realize that there was such a growing problem with people asking for money on street corners (I only thought that they did it in Congress).

The more I thought about this, the more I came to realize that there were different levels of panhandling, and that some of them were just plain wrong.  As it often does, these thoughts turned themselves into a session in front of the keyboard, with "Stop Panhandling" as a result.

Since this was put up Sunday evening, the week is just beginning and I have no idea what will be going on as the days progress. If you want to know however, you will have to spend a bit of time finding out in Toledo's largest Sunday circulation and Best Weekly Newspaper, the Toledo Free Press.
