It’s been a real dark couple of weeks, so here’s a dose of light. A 15-year-old girl onboard an Alaska Airlines flight to Oregon last week helped a blind and deaf man communicate with flight attendants, after they asked passengers if anyone knew American Sign Language. It is a very nice story.
The first time I came across this story, I read it as “socks,” not “stocks,” and was extremely impressed, but what the cold hard truth boils down to is that Kanye West gifted Kim Kardashian money for Christmas. Temperamental money, but money nonetheless.
There are many ways to celebrate the holidays. Ice skating, egg nog, burning a giant log, or heck—why not throw a couple penguins into the room?
Some of us decorate for the holidays by Scotch-taping a couple strings of multicolored Christmas lights to the rafters and calling it a day because that eggnog isn't going to drink itself. Not Renetta Zanco of Lothian, Maryland, who is truly, deeply dedicated.
