City commissioners decline to enact tougher downtown panhandling regulations.

Too bad, really. Panhandlers are kind of like pigeons...you have a few around and it's not too bad. Some would even say it adds 'character' to the city. But, you give one or two a handout, pretty soon, they know where the easy pickin's are and bring some friends. More and more show up looking for a freebie and before you know it, the streets are a crowded mess, everything stinks and is covered with crap.
