A man decked out in suit, hat, and scarf stands on a median at the intersection of Southmore and Almeda in Houston, Texas. Under his arm, he carries a copy of a small newspaper. He gestures towards cars as they drive by or stop at the light, offering them a copy. They zip by or keep their windows rolled up. Later in the day he crafts a sign that reads "FREE! NEWSPAPER" and has a bit more luck, with many drivers still ignoring him.
