(CBS4) DENVER The city of Denver has recycled old parking meters to help in the fight against homelessness.The old parking meters have been placed at various locations in downtown, including Skyline Park.The idea is to encourage people to put the money into the parking meters instead of giving to panhandlers. Money raised from the meters will go to organizations fighting homelessness.
I don't put my spare change in the meter when I park in front of one. I'm certainly not going out of my way to drop money in a meter I'm not even using. Besides, if you don't give occasionally to panhandlers, who else is going to support the Mogan David winery?
I kid. I kid.
Seriously, how is the city of Denver going to solve it's problem of 16,000 homeless in 10 years with motorists' spare change? Must be some of that liberal fuzzy math.
