A couple of weeks ago, the City of Corpus Christi passed an ordinance banning panhandling in certain parts of the city. They have all kinds of excuses as those who think they know best for others always do. Really, though we know what it was for...to make businesses happy, to coddle the comfortable so they don't have to feel uncomfortable by being spoken to by the poor...whatever.
The first amendment is for everyone. This is not okay.
