With corporate excess in the air like a foul fog, let us consider Jorge Munoz, a Colombian schoolbus driver in Queens, N.Y. who feeds the hungry out of his pickup truck seven nights a week and has for over four years straight, spending $400 of his $700 weekly pay check to do it. Lately, he feeds over 100 people a night; he has served more than 70,000 free meals. His largesse, he says, comes easy: "My mom teach me to share." Insatiable executives, take note.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
