17. I would often buy "portable" food from a grocery store for people panhandling outside a grocery store.

It seemed more personal than just tossing cash into their hat. ($5 was my usual if I that was the only option, because I'm on a pension, and it's NOT generous.) Especially in colder weather, I'd include something hot if the store had a deli counter.

Credit Where Credit Is Due: Despite making what a reviewer astutely characterized as "wimp metal," Jon Bon Jovi is a decent human being. He has a restaurant where you pay what you think the meal is worth, including nothing, if nothing is what you have.

I still don't like that band's output, but my estimation of him went WAY up when I saw this.
