There was a story on NPR a while back about a bum and congressional staffer. He would always sit in Union Station (here in DC) and once every couple of weeks, she (the staffer) would give him a dollar that was the change from her latte. One day, she ran into him outside a restaurant near The Hill and they got to talking. Apparently, he makes about $600 a day, tax free. He had been planning to beg for a while then get a job and clearly that wouldn't have been so lucrative so he stuck with the begging. Needless to say, she, making less than a third of what he was, didn't give him her change anymore.
