Online bum shares story on Web site - Tech and gadgets- msnbc.com

Interesting article. Makes one think - I'm not sure they should use the title "pimp" at all, but at least they're drawing attention to an issue that needs more attention!

It says that Edwards has unsuccessfully tried different programs to get back on his feet, but none have worked. It also says that he's entering an alcohol detox program??

You would be suprised, but a lot of 'bums' that are on the highway, begging for money, make more than you or I did working! Yeppers, there was a television show that showed this, and my Wife and I personally know of a few people who always said, and held up a sign, will work for food, but, when you try to actually give them a ride and take them to a place to eat, they simply refuse because they only want your money so that they can buy more booze! Its a shame.

May the LORD Bless each of you.

I wish you well...
