Have you read about these new homeless meters that they plan to put up in San Francisco? They work like parking meters, only you stick change in there for homeless charities -- rather than giving it to panhandlers.
I'm excited to see this concept in action. I can imagine me winking at a guy begging for change, pulling out a calfskin coin purse and then -- PSYCH!! -- sticking the coins in a nearby meter.
It sounds just like a Mentos commercial!
