    If I didn't know any better I would have thought Calboy came up with that title.:p

    It is nice to hear people still care about others when most of the time they only care about themselves.:cool:

    Wow, so nice of Papa Johns to donate pizza. Hope they made a contribution to the fund as well. I know their policy for delivery drivers is no different from a lot of places, but I'd still consider this to be a bit of negative publicity for them, especially as it doesn't say that strangers care more for their employees than they do.

    Papa John's donated $3500 as well as 100 pizzas for the celebration. Nice contribution, IMO.

    How do you know I didn't write the article? ;) :p Give me some time, I'm sure I can earn my title back. :D

    Seriously though, what a nice story. :) With what you read in the news most of the time, this is definitely a morale booster. :)

    That's why I posted the article. We can all use a little something happy these days.

    The thread title is FARK-worthy. +1, as is said there. :D

    (warning: although not pr0n, Fark contains rather irreverent humor on its front page and may be considered semi-NSFW)

    Hey man. I just copied it from the article. Blame the Chicago Tribune, not me. ;)

    Great story and yes, does make one feel good. It's nice to read something positive for a change. And yes, I agree, the title is horrible; I clicked on it expecting - well, it doesn't matter but some, ghastly "mad but true" story used to fill newsprint.

    Cheers
