Actually, when you stop and think about it, there are far more decent people in the world than jerks. It’s just that the actions of the jerks give them a social footprint far exceeding that of the majority.
Today I met yet another Good Samaritan, a gentleman who found my Surface tablet sitting on a park bench, and took it upon himself to secure it pending the owner’s returning for it. When neither Barbara nor I showed up he took it with him, used the log in screen information to track me down, and contacted me to arrange for its return.
As luck would have it, he’s also an interesting person whose profession may well be useful in moving the San Carlos community ahead.
Perhaps it’s true that nothing happens by accident :).
