After the PanHandling Bomb!!!

Chirp Chirp…… all quiet. I read an article this morning in the AJC [Article] Mainly it talked about how there had been a decrease in panhandling and that things seemed to be much quieter down town…. I have been down town a few times here and there, but it all seemed the same to me. Near the parks, near centennial, … near five points, underground…. I still see some Panhandling here and there…. Am I crazy? …. or am I a Panhandling magnet?

Maybe someone who is always down there can speak up? Is the media not getting a broad enough scope on the results, or am I just “lucky” with Panhandlers?

    I felt the same way last night. Noticed absolutely no difference.

    I know! I can’t beleive the audacity poor people have! It’s like they still need money… even though they should know its the law not to bother me as I scurry through downtown back to my hipster pad! I mean really, the nightmares I have after being asked for spare change will have me in therapy for weeks!

    I do have mixed feelings about the law… but was curious as to what the outcome was going to be once it was in place….
