Read your column every Sunday in the Columbus Dispatch. Today, "beggar seeks cash," i recall an incident that happened almost 30 years ago. It was the time when we were stopped a lot for asking for change. This particul time, a man dressed clean and nice asked me if I had any change. I gave him a small handful. After a moment or two, he came back. I had a catholic medal mixed up with the change and he wanted to return it. I told him to keep it. I often think of that man and feel sure that everything must have turned out well for him.
