Wow.. what a gift.

DENVER -- Some last-minute shoppers at a K-Mart store in Longmont are celebrating after getting an early Christmas present.

An anonymous woman and her son showed up at the store and asked to pick up the tab for about a dozen customers. Store manager Linda Linville said she walked around with the pair as they picked out the shoppers they would help.

The recipients all either had children or were buying things for children.

The customers didn't know what was happening until they got to the checkout line. The woman and her son -- who offered the help as their Christmas presents to each other -- watched from a bench nearby.

The woman also asked the manager to slip a $100 bill in one woman's pocket. She found it out in the parking lot when she reached for her keys.

Thank her parents for raising her properly as well! A good example of not being “afraid” (“afraid to act”, “afraid you’ll be embarassed if it turns out to be nothing”, etc.).

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Michigan (AP) — A boy who said on the Internet that he planned to bomb his high school was turned in by the 16-year-old daughter of a university police officer who heads a cyber crimes unit, authorities said.

Authorities credited Celia McGinty of Moscow, Idaho, with foiling a plot to bomb Chippewa Valley High School outside Detroit.

Police said a search of 17-year-old Andrew Osantowski’s home last week turned up instructions for making a bomb and videotapes of him with assault weapons.
