When Media Does Good

If you have not heard the story of Homeless DJ Ted Williams, there's the link to the story.

One day ago he was holding a sign asking for money at an off ramp to I-71 about a mile from where I lived for ten years. A local newspaper reporter put up a video telling his story on the Columbus Dispatch's web page. YouTube got a hold of it, as did Gawker Media then Reddit.

He's been on WNCI this morning, phone calls are coming in for him, offering job opportunities. He's going to be on The Early Show. Pretty amazing and emotional stuff.

It's not all bad out there is it?

Saw a bit on the news this morning, but didn't know the job offers had started coming in. Pleased for him.
