I think the most endearing story to come out of this week was that of a hardware store in Chagrin Falls (I wouldn't make it up), a small suburban area of Cleveland.
The idea was called a "Cash Mob", in keeping with the "Flash Mobs" that would go to malls and sing etc. In this case however, it wasn't singing that brought these folks out; it was a show of support for an old friend. What old friend? The small hometown hardware store run by the same family for 72 years.
Time and a few problems had set the old store back a bit, so a local resident put out the call for help. The word went out via e-mail and other social networking with a challenge for each person to spend at least $20 on one specific date. The day arrived and the customers came pouring in.
"This is small town America" said one person. Another said "People, this is how to take America back".
This couldn't have come at a better time, not only for the family who owned the hardware store, but for a nation. One small town showing all of us how to lead through action.
Really, in an election year, this is the quality to look for; someone who has lead through action. The right kind of action.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.

I think this story has to finish in first place this election year as the most favorable political action story written.
This is the kind of story that sums up why Sheila "Samm" Tittle is the one true leader of this kind of action on the ballot in this election.
Samm has worked for, contributed to, and created small businesses all of her life and represents the type of action spoken of in the story.
I think that we all should ("We the People" as her Party is named) use social media and create a "Dash Mob" (as in dash to the finish!
Put out the word for the only candidate on the ballot that truely is "One of Us"! Madame President Samm Tittle 2012.
That's my opinion and you're entitled to it.
