Hey Buddy, Spare some change??

While wandering around downtown today, I was reminded that I don't know how I feel about homeless people. Are they crazy because they're homeless? Or are they homeless because they're crazy? Do I not give them money because they're just going to spend it on booze and smokes? Or do I give them money to spend on booze and smokes because it will make their already miserable lives that much more tolerable? I'm leaning towards the second option lately. Who am I to tell them how to spend their money? I have too much, they have none, by ignoring them, am I really doing anyone a service?? I say, give the bum some change, especially if they can do an amusing trick, or have a clever sign.
