Wash your ears out with this...

I got the title from former commentator and newscaster, Paul Harvey, who after a particularly nasty piece of news, told a story of somebody who did something especially good.

Here is my contribution. A blind customer had a $20 bill fall out of his wallet onto the ground. The woman behind him picked up the money and put it in her wallet. What the young man did next was most admirable.

Every once in a while we're reminded that there is hope for the younger generation.

Too bad they don't have security video of that woman so they can identify her and prosecute her for theft.

So gratifying to read about this nice gesture. Unfortunately, that great feeling is counter-balanced by reading about the underlying deed by that low-life.
