    We evaluate everybody we come in contact with each day.


    It's best not to base an entire evaluation of anybody by any single event, circumstance, or act, but we do it all the time.

    An honest guy for sure but the CNN moron saying $4000 could have changed his life, REALLY? REALLY? Even if he got $4k for the ring, and I doubt he'd have gotten 1/2 that, how would that change his life? Now the $192k, yeah that'll change his life.

    But if he bought a house why is he sitting on the sidewalk instead of being in his house? Is he still panhandling? Odd story but hey it's CNN.

    They probably just had him sit on the sidewalk for the story. It said he is starting a painting service. He spoke well though not some putz.
