    Default Web Site 'Pimps' Homeless Man

    A Houston marketing specialist and his son have taken Edwards' fall from grace and turned it into During regular webcasts, Web surfers ask questions about Edwards' life and his slow fall from officer manager with a home, a car, and a future to a beggar on the street. People can also make donations.

    Some homeless advocates said the Web site does little to address the underlying issues of homelessness. And the intentionally controversial name makes some bristle.

    Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County president Anthony Love said "to pimp anyone is not something" he would endorse.

    Edwards said the site has brought him and his friends "a lot of hope." He's scheduled to enter an alcohol detox program this coming week.
