A Terrific piece of reporting from someone at the Boston Globe

July 5, 2009

After hearing about Michael Jackson’s passing, an entire planeful of people dying, Farrah Fawcett’s demise, the economy, and a myriad of other depressing stories, how about a welcome change?

Kudos to Jenna Russell, the author of the article I linked to above. 

Let us know what you all think, and perhaps even start a discussion if you like, either on this blog or on the site page. 


The Integral



  1. “When Resnik learned that an old traffic ticket had blocked his homeless friend from getting a room through the city, he drove him to a court in Palmer, where he represented him pro bono and resolved the case. Because of that kindness, Rob is off the streets. He has found a part-time job as a church custodian and volunteers his time serving meals to homeless people.”

    Wow, that’s amazing, because of that small kindness, a man’s whole life was turned around, and given some stability.

    I also want to comment that “personal connection” and “camaraderie” are very difficult for autistics to find, and often NOT because we’re not able, but because others are not willing to give them.

  2. No sensationalism. No stereotypes.

    Yes. It was a nice story, nicely told.
