Needed reminders

Two encouraging stories from Iowa:

Kathy Nelson:

Because they did the right thing, because they were responsible, they will be forgotten---and that just pisses me off.  It's yet another sign of what's wrong with this world: be an asshole, and you'll get as much media coverage as you can take, but be responsible and you'll be forgotten.

Russ from Winterset:
Next time you see some college athlete in a “revenue sport” acting like a horse’s ass, remember these kids and know that not all athletes are self-centered and spoiled.  I know that for every memory of a house or business befouled with floodwaters, there will be another warm memory of a stranger who showed up out of nowhere and asked “What can I do to help?”
