By Katharine Romefelt

A prison bus collision presumably spells trouble. You might picture something out of The Fugitive, with eager prisoners fleeing the scene for their freedom, with little regard for their fellow men in captivity. But when a bus full of 50 prisoners crashed into a semi-truck on Interstate 8 in Arizona recently, the outcome shocked everyone involved in the case.

 

Following the wreck, the 30 unharmed prisoners immediately provided first-aid to the 20 injured men rather than embrace their chance to escape captivity.

As the poet Macklemore taught us, a thrift shop can be a magical place. Assistance League of Santa Monica (ALSM) has one that will keep your closet and wallet stuffed and, of course, help support a great cause.

better thrift 2ALSM’s thrift shop has everything you could want — clothes (both current and vintage to keep you looking good for the new school year), jewelry, home supplies (for Mom and Dad) and a collection of books for your reading pleasure (or for, you know, school. Sorry to bring it up again). You can make room for all your new swag by donating items to the shop.
