Small Change

  1. Thanks for the comment. However, I do agree with the song:
    “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day;
    tomorrow he’ll be hungry in the same old way.
    Teach him how to fish and you feed him for his life;
    tomorrow he’ll be feeding his children and his wife.”

    I had a friend who bought MacD coupon books and handed them out, rather than coins, to beggars in Philly. She said some fellows accepted them gladly and some others threw them back in her face. It all depends on what a fellow wants the money for: food or “pain relief.”
