A few days ago, I recieved a letter from The Rebel Yell's contact box online from some guy who wanted to get a hold of one of our staff writers. I forwarded the e-mail to the writer. Worried he might be a disgruntled reader or source, I asked her to let me know what he wanted.
Well, she e-mailed me back the next day and told me that everything was OK. Apparently, she'd left her USB drive in a computer lab. Some stranger had found it, seen her name on all of the files, Googled her and found The Rebel Yell Web site. Turns out, he just wanted to return her lost property.
The writer ended her e-mail to me, "Can't believe there are still nice people in this world who are willing to go the extra mile to help."
I must agree.
