NOREEN: On panhandlers, it's not about the smell

A woman named Stormy (the only name given) stops to give a pastry to Mike at the corner of Tejon Street and Bijou Street Tuesday morning, November 13, 2012. Mike, who is homeless, can quite often be found panhandling on that corner. Stormy said she was formerly homeless herself. The Gazette, Mark Reis Photo by MARK REIS, THE GAZETTE
