Dude almost has the concept down. He’s got the cardboard matting, but he’s still sleeping on the cold sidewalk.
Right after I took the picture, this very righteous Berkeley women stopped and said to me:
“I often give a dollar to people like that.”
“I often do, too,” I said.
“Especially if I take their picture,” she said. Then she righteously walked off, having done her good deed for the day by helpfully suggesting that somebody else do a good deed.
PS. I wouldn’t be the least surprised if I’ve given out a hell of a lot more money to my fellow street persons over the years than this person ever did. Call it a hunch.
