A follow up to Friday's post... as we had heard, Shin's story made it's way to '60 Minutes' over the weekend and while I focused more on the work on Linda and Lowell Dye, the broadcast on CBS focused more on Shin himself and the atrocities he's endured. I'm really not one to tell folks what to think or try to make you care about something, but Shin's story is one that sobers me... to think that people are still treated like this in 2012 makes me sad. I'm glad to have interviewed the Lowell's and wish them well in their efforts to affect change in this troubled part of the world.
In fiscal cliff notes... Treasury Sec. Tim Geithner says the GOP and Dems are still far apart, but there is some move toward the middle. Speaker John Boehner says when he first saw the President's plan he was 'flabbergasted'. Eventhough Geithner says the ball is in the GOP's court, Rep. Tom Cole says his side doesn't need to present it's plan yet.
And yeah... most of us did not win any jackpot at all in last week's Powerball, but there are people scoring relatively big buying hidden jems at Goodwill stores. The most recent one was bought for twelve bucks and is worth $9K.
