Ft. Lauderdale might want to reconsider new laws, as nation takes umbrage that 90-year-old man who distributes food to homeless faces 60 days in jail.

"Late last month, the city of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., passed a series of laws that restricted where organizations could feed the homeless. On Sunday, when a 90-year-old man received a citation in Stranahan Park, the effects of these new laws came into full view. Arnold Abbott, who is ordered to appear in court, says that hundreds of homeless people had gathered in the park and then police arrived. Police issued court orders to him and two members of the clergy, who were handing out food. He says he faces a maximum of 60 days in jail." -- Lindsay Ellis, the Christian Science Monitor
