"Usually they would drop down tens and twenties..."

"...but now it's just one dollar at a time," Chicago street musician Michael Upton told CBS 2 in a story about the depletion of the American Red Cross disaster fund.
I don't know Mr. Upton, and I certainly don't want to publicly question his veracity. But 10s and 20s? The people of Chicago must have been very, very, very, very generous compared to most other cities. Very, very, very generous. Again, very, very generous.
Even if now it is "just one dollar at a time," the fine folks of Chicago are very, very generous.
