This is a feel good story if there ever was one. See Area Residents Take to the Streets of Ferguson. But Not for the Reason You Think. Excerpt:
St. Louis County residents who wanted their voices to be heard decided to show up in Ferguson, Mo. Their goal: To give some much-needed business to shops damaged by vandals and looters.
More than 40 members of the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition headed to the embattled town Thursday evening to shop at the small businesses and support the local economy.
Led by Bill Hennessy, one of the group’s founders, they shopped at a variety of stores in Ferguson and made plans to “buycott” the St. Louis suburb again next weekend.
In an era when it seems everyone is out to plunder to satisfy some sense of unrequited entitlement, it's so nice to read about people who actually care about and want to help others. What a country this is.
