Bankers deserve a lot of the crap they get. Especially the NYNY power bankers who workout dirty backroom deals. Your everyday run of the mill local bankers still produce an occasional good egg. Take for example Blake Pollock.
Blake saw the same man walking to work down Crooks Rd In Rochester MI, year after year. One day he offered him a ride. This went on for some time. He didn't give him a ride everyday, but he stopped when he could. After a while Pollock's passenger, James Robinson shared his hard luck story with his unlikely carpool buddy.
James had a car, 10 years ago, but it died and he couldn't afford another car, so he did the best he could getting to his job in a local shop. Mostly he'd try to grab a bus and then walk the rest or bum a ride when he could. James Robinson is what America was, a hardworking man who showed up for work and does his best, day in and day out, no matter what his personal circumstances.
If you think about it, its a typical Detroit kind of story. Times are tough, a man's down on his luck, (cue "Blue Collar Man" background music) doing the best he can, walking to work in the snow because he knows the value of having a job and sticking with it.
America in general and Detroit in particular responded to that story. Two weeks ago Detroit's hard working and hard walking man, was given a new Ford Taurus.
Say what you want about Detroit (I have), they still got heart in the motor city.
For those of you who don't know Rochester Hills is a very wealthy community. I used to live there. For a banker to stop for a shop rat is incredible in and of its self. To go the extra mile like Blake did is freaking awesome!
