By paying alcoholics to pick up trash all day with beer, tobacco, food and money, Amsterdam has hit upon a very popular program that really works to reduce idleness among their resident population of bums. It even works to elevate their self-image. Several of the comments extol the virtues of abstinence and self-control instead of managing the condition.

For these folks, total abstinence  is not on the table. But this solution helps everyone.
