There is still hope for mankind!!

This morning there was a story in the local paper about a 10 year old boy who having excelled at school was given a $200 bicycle as a reward.
24 hours after getting the bike, it was stolen.
So, outraged, I called the mom and talked to her and the boy on the air live and let them tell the story. It was heart touching.
Shortly thereafter, I got a call from a listener who wanted to replace the bike immediately and wanted me to be the "go between" so that he could remain anonymous.
So, the end is, the boy will be getting a new bike before Christmas.
The boy goes to Highland and is from a poor family so this makes it that much more fun.
Great story and makes me so glad that there are still wonderful people out there!!

Is this your blog of redemption? In all fairness, at least you allow public responses to your public rants!

Did you change your set up so people can't leave anonymous comments because of that last post? It takes so much more time to leave a comment now, I don't like it. Besides, I liked anonymous' point about the daily web log being a year long diary. Keep those Christmas letters coming! And great pic of Kai in our Christmas card, thanks!

No I didn't change anything at all. I think blogger did some changes to the log in process, but not me.
As for the diary idea, that might be fine for some, but there are a lot of people, some very famous, who use their blogs to search out political stories, pursue news leads and a lot more.
Mine is a little of all of those.
