On their way home from the circus that evening, afew people paused to listen to a man speaking under a bare light bulb from a platform. He was selling some gadget, but no one seemed interested. Among the onlookers was a short, poorly dressed man, his tired-looking wife and two small children. The salesman sensed that he wasnt getting anywhere, so he heightened his pitch: If you buy right now, Ill give you two for the price of one. Still no takers. The little man and his family began moving away. Looking straight at them, he continued, And, Ill give everything I take in tonight to charity.
