Homeless Man, Honored

Let’s start this morning off with a feel-good story: A Boston homeless man named Glen James was honored at police headquarters for turning in a backpack he found that contained $2,400 in cash, $39,500 in traveler’s checks, and a passport and various papers. The backpack ended up belonging to a Best Buy customer (it remains a mystery as to why the customer was carrying around so much cash, and I’m very curious about the reason and whether he offered any kind of reward to James after having his backpack returned to him). Others have been inspired to help James: A man named Ethan Whittington has started a fundraiser for James, and has at this point in time raised a little more than $9,000. [via]
