Why Does Every Transient in Billings Have a Cell Phone?
Paul saw one again this morning, a transient walking down the street in downtown Billings talking on his cellphone. Is it just us, or does every vagrant in our community have an smartphone?
Evidently, we’re in the wrong line of work. Panhandling must pay well because the transient community in Billings seems to have no problem paying for their cellphones, cigarettes, booze and drugs.
Which inspired Paul’s great idea of the day (he’s usually good for at least one moment of brilliance each morning). Instead of enacting a No Panhandling Ordinance, why don’t we pass a new law making it illegal for any person with a cell phone to beg for money. That’ll solve our problem right there.
