You may have been harassed by a person wearing black, black suspenders and a hounds tooth cap. He is begging the locals for money; some have called it pan-handling. He wants to print books, oh, how lofty. He is directing people to something called a “Kickstarter” where he has made a small film and is giving away prizes. If you are interested in supporting the arts, or just a begging author, have a look at his postings.
