It used to be that a panhandler might ask for only a dime, or some "spare change" as is most often the case. On the way home tonight, however, two different panhandlers---several blocks apart---each asked me for exactly $0.40. "Can you spare forty cents?" I'm sure there's some kind of logic involved here, but I'm missing it. Have beggars finally found the magical price point at which to maximize return on their requested donations?
