The heavy hand of hardness

And America marches on in the war on poverty, or rather, the war on the poor. It is now a crime to feed homeless people in Las Vegas:
Soup kitchens serving the homeless have been banned in the US city of Las Vegas with fines coming into force for anyone caught giving hand-outs in its parks.

Council officials decided to curb the charity practice, with possible fines of $1,000 and six months imprisonment, after complaints from residents.
I guess all that glitz takes on a little tarnish with the presence of those inconsiderate homeless folks.
