    I agree with your article in the Centennial Citizen regarding putting an end to profanity in ads. Thanks for being willing to take the heat for it.

    When I hand over my dollars to panhandlers, I m answering a similar call for contribution at a street-corner crowdfunding site, writes Andrea W. Doray. I give money to the rugged, raggedy people on street corners who hold cardboard signs that bless me. I keep dollar bills handy, and even the occasional five, so I can zip down my window and pass the cash to the person who sprints over to accept my offering.
