Show compassion for panhandlers
I would like to respond to Baltimore City Councilwoman Rikki Spector's efforts to limit panhandling ("Spector bill targets 'aggressive' begging," Jan. 29). In an ideal world, we would not be subjected to these pathetically weary people that we see on street corners. Perhaps some of them do exploit our sympathies and our money. However, my religion teaches me that I will do the right thing by helping them. If they choose to use my money for drugs, alcohol, etc., that is their choice, but I will do what is right.
