    The author of the article wanted to know if homeless people are drunks, addicts, thieves, and liars.

    Looks like that hypothesis was overturned pretty quickly.
    From my experience with homeless people, it seems most of them are simply down on their luck, but still mostly honest.

    its nice to see that most of the people in need actually used the cards for something they needed. I have given money to people who asked me on the streets and was sad to see a couple of the people comming out of a store with booze. It was not my intention to feed a habit and to be used.
