Menlo Park 94025

Reading the papers, it’s easy to despair of the survival of integrity in this world.

And yet, every so often, my faith is rejuvenated.  Yesterday, for instance:  my starving grad student neighbors were dumpster diving to put dinner on the table, when they found a wallet containing $1200 in foreign currency.  Caring not how a semester’s worth of In ‘n Out burgers might revive their emaciated frames, or for that matter how large sums of cash are often linked to dealing in controlled substances, they tracked down the delinquent owner, and returned the money untouched.

Now that just warms the cockles of my heart.
