Wages Of Sin 

Down The Shore has a post about Wesley Lake, seen at right, which divides Asbury Park and Ocean Grove, it's deterioration and plans for redevelopment.

You see the little bridge in the background? I had a friend in high school who went to St. Rose in Belmar. He came up with the idea for us to post ourselves on the Ocean Grove side of the bridge late at night on weekends. We would wait for tipsy Methodists to come stumbling from Sin City to their (dry) home town and panhandle their asses. His theory was that guilty consciences would make them empty their pockets for a couple of kids trying to make bus fare back to Philly. I actually went out with him one night to test his theory.

Didn't work. Unfortunately, cheapness won out over guilt.
