business news in context, analysis with attitude

by Kevin Coupe

The news can be pretty depressing these days, which is why I'd like to start the week with a good news story … from NBC News, a piece about Lashenda Williams, who after a lifetime of addiction, abandonment and abuse, spent months sleeping in her car, parked in a slept in a Kroger parking lot in Nashville.  Now, the story says, "the same supermarket has welcomed her with a job and a fresh start."

It is an Eye-Opener about compassion and community at a time when both can seem in short supply.
