Never enable by giving money to panhandlers. This profession should be shunned. Support business and help the homeless by referring them to Weingart Center or the VA. Say no to panhandling and traffic in Brentwood. And somebody, please tell new guy Bonin to get rid of that Bundy/Mayfield stop sign.
