The Silver Lining

Even in the darkest moments you can always find some stories that show just how caring people can be. Michelle Malkin has compiled a list of just some of the good news stories that have managed to reaffirm peoples faith in humanity.

A special mention for the story of Jabbar Gibson, the 18 year old New Orleans native that took it upon himself to commandeer an abandoned school bus and after collecting almost 100 other refugees, drove the 8 hour trip from N.O. to Houston. I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more about Jabber and his amazing bus ride in the coming days.

On a related note: Despite what you may read on sites like Daily Kos and Pandagon, no one, and I mean NO ONE, would ever prosecute this kid for 'stealing' the bus. In fact, the evil right wingers who they would have you believe would want to lock him up have only showered him with universal praise (warning, ACE gets a little heated in that last link).

I'm just adding this because the first link I found on Jabber with a Google search was from a Kos diary in which the claims of right wing prosecution were often repeated.
