This guy was awesome, got to speak and work with him a little bit. Found dead by apparent suicide even though everyone said he seemed fine.
Tampa instituted a pan handling ban. Part of me was against it, but too many of the panhandlers were either professionals or would harass the drivers. They ruined it for all.
So Bill created a newspaper that they could sell, because selling papers is still legal. This really pissed off the Dem Mayor Buckhorn and most of City Council, all Dems- except for one which would come down to Occupy sometimes and show support. Great lady, just plain gets it.
