Yaaay! More bums!

Just what we need downtown. I've noticed that there are still a few doorways that don't smell of vomit and urine. So now, the wino or crackhead will be able to simply stand on a street corner and sing for his spare change. I think I'll go buy a cheap guitar, and old hat, and start playing down on Front Street. Oh, I can't play the guitar, but if you're going to let bums/street musicians solicit money, who is in a position to judge their talent? Who gets to say "This man is a musician, but this man is a bum who found a guitar." In other words, you can't exempt street musicians because suddenly, every homeless bum will be a street musician and who the heck are YOU to say he's not? Leave the law as it is. Even better, start enforcing it!
