Ball point pen on the morning newsprint
When the morning paper seems an endless parade of stories about greedy CEO's, the economic downturn, partisan bickering, bankruptcies, pink slips and layoffs, sometimes we need a display of humanity to wash the jaded taste from our mouths. Enter Camden New Jersey native, Jesse Coltrane. He had been exchanging instant messages and phone calls with a despondent California teenager. When he saw the image on his webcam of the teen, who had been talking about suicide, cutting his forearm with a razor blade, his action of calling the police may have saved the teens life.
