SARASOTA - To slow a revolving door of homeless and the indigent who commit crimes but ignore hefty fines, Sarasota's prosecuting attorney and area judges have a new plan to make them pay with their own sweat.

Nice. I'm a fan of labor for those who commit crimes. Screw letting them sit around on their ass on my dime. Get something from them. Have them actually repay their debt to society.

Sounds like a good idea. However, making them work will be a trick.

Plus, when they work they get skills and connections to people who can give them references for future employment. I've been paying attention lately to/praying for the homeless beggers in Detroit, they are social pariahs, in a lot of places. No names, no family, probably lost their minds years ago. They are throwaway people in a throwaway city. I gave a guy $3 today who was hanging outside of the chinese restaurant where I got lunch. He acted like he had cerebral palsy, even though I know it's just the effects of crack-induced mini strokes.


Then again, isn't Sarasota where they arrested Pee Wee Herman in a porno theater for doing what I always assumed men did in porno theaters?
