On the Impudence of the Gutter Classes

A Knoxville man reports that his home was twice besmirched by a homeless man. The 64-year-old man tells police that on the afternoon of April 2, a male streetling approached his residence begging for a dollar. The man, in all his magnanimity, kindly granted this request and bid the homeless person goodbye.

But apparently that wasn't enough for this unwashed ruffian (it never is)! The homeowner tells police that he was awakened the very same night to see the homeless man shuffling away from the house, carrying with him some crude instrument of lawn maintenance pilfered from the front yard. I believe it is called a "leaf blower."
