A retired lawyer who wishes to remain anonymous, right, hands out $10 bills to thousands of destitute people who queued up for several hours to receive their gift at the Midnight Mission, downtown Los Angeles on Thursday, Dec. 23, 2010. The 69-year-old attorney known as the Skid Row's Santa Claus, has been giving away $20,000 of his own money every year over the past 30 years during Christmas.
