http://allafrica.com/stories/201305280674.html is a story that actually turned the Crankometer down a few notches. One Lelisa Desisa, winner of this year’s Boston Marathon, will be returning from his home in Ethiopia to donate his medal to the city in a show of solidarity with the victims of the bombing.

In a  nation whose Congress would let homeless disaster victims starve to death rather than provide aid to them, this man shows us how good humans can be. Bless him.
