Boston homeless manglad to turn in lost money
BOSTON — Ahomeless Boston manwho police said turned in a backpackcontaining tens of thousands of dollarsin cash and traveler’s checks said evenif he were desperate he wouldn’t havekept “even a penny.”Boston Police Commissioner EdwardDavis honored Glen James on Monday,giving him a special citation andthanking him for an “extraordinaryshow of character and honesty.”James said in a handwritten statementhe gave out at a news conference that hewas glad to make sure the bag and itscontents were returned to the owner.“Even if I were desperate for money, Iwould not have kept even a penny,” hesaid.James, who said he once worked as aBoston courthouse employee, found thebackpack at the South Bay Mall in thecity’s Dorchester neighborhoodSaturday evening. He ﬂagged down apolice ofﬁcer and handed it over. Insidethe backpack was $2,400 in U.S. cur-rency, almost $40,000 in traveler’schecks, Chinese passports and otherpersonal papers.The man who lost it told workers at anearby Best Buy store at the mall andthey called police. Ofﬁcers thenbrought the backpack’s owner to a near-by police station and returned his prop-erty after conﬁrming it belonged tohim.Authorities said that the backpack’sowner didn’t want his identity madepublic, but that he was a Chinese stu-dent who was visiting another studentin Boston.James, who didn’t give his age, saidhe is from the Boston area and has beenhomeless since 2005. Apolice spokes-woman said authorities don’t know hisage either, but said that James is stay-ing at a city homeless shelter and thatmany people have expressed interest inhelping him since hearing about hisgood deed.The Good Samaritan said in his state-ment that he worked as a ﬁle clerk inBoston’s municipal courthouse for 13years, but lost his job and becamehomeless after problems with his boss.James said it would be difﬁcult for himto hold down a job because he suffersfrom Meniere’s disease, which theMayo Clinic describes as an inner eardisorder that causes episodes of verti-go.
Would you boardflight 666 to HEL?
HELSINKI — Would you board ﬂight666 to HELon Friday the 13th?For superstitious travelers, thatmight be tempting fate. But Finnairpassengers on AY666 to Helsinki -which has the three letter designationHEL- don’t seem too bothered. Friday’sﬂight is almost full.“It has been quite a joke among thepilots” said veteran Finnair pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto, who will ﬂy the AirbusA320 from Copenhagen to Helsinki.“I’m not a superstitious man. It’s only acoincidence for me.”The daily ﬂight AY666 fromCopenhagen to Helsinki falls on Fridaythe 13th twice in 2013. Friday the 13this considered bad luck in many coun-tries and the number 666 also hasstrong negative biblical associations.Some airlines, like ScandinavianAirlines, take these fears seriously anddon’t have a row 13 on board. However,the negative connotations are a rela-tively new phenomenon for northernEuropeans, and Finnair and otherregional carriers like Norwegian andEstonian Air keep row 13.
