I'd like to see JH Security take more of an interest in him. Most of the house doors 'Kevin' can knock on in JH are in areas he's not authorised to be in, so a call to Security should in theory result in him at least being asked to leave that area. Posters - how about prominent posters in JH (eg on lamp posts?) advising visitors not to give money to anyone (rather than him specifically) who approaches them in JH? Also, would a few 'begging is not permitted in this area' posters help? Although they appear to be no threat, the guys who bum change at the Epicurean are a bore and may alarm some visitors. On the other hand, postering photos of Kevin all over the island might just make him a folk hero, and he's less danger to your wallet than say, a timeshare salesman
- a species I've never encountered in Antigua (do they exist?).
Spooky - would you find a beach like Jolly Beach or Dickenson Bay on any major tropical tourist island where you'd encounter fewer beach vendors? Maybe it's illegal and highly policed somewhere, but if so, I've never been there - to me, they're just part of the landscape, like the guys who offer to book boat trips and other excursions (BTW, Eli - would you care to comment on whether one should book trips from those guys?). What makes 'Kevin different from a beach vendor is that by all accounts he's collecting money under false pretences.
