This Season's Best Christmas Tale
So maybe pouring a bucket of cold water on the Super Bowl hopes of Miami Dolphin-dom wasn't the most sensitive holiday message.

A rags to riches man from Canton, Ohio, who during the worst of the original Great Depression (we're currently in the midst of a bad sequel) mailed checks anonymously to whoever had a story of financial despair that touched his heart and whose identity took 75 years to come to light.
Actually, that story gives me an idea.
