    This photo juxtaposes perfectly the contrast between the growing gap between America's upper and poor classes. This man is begging on one of the preeminent symbols of American capitalism, prosperity, and materialism (Michigan Ave.) using a Starbucks cup (another sybmol of our socially unjust pursuit of wealth).

      Hmmm. They don't give those cups out for free so something tells me that he bought a coffee. I have tons of photographs of homeless people smoking too. Not a very good use for other people's hard earned cash.

      Whenever I see a homeless person, I offer them a hamburger or something. 95% of the time, they won't accept it. They want the money for their vice.
