In regard to Bill Brooks’ comment re: his paper carrier. He said occasionally he leaves a “small tip” for him. A small tip? Knowing what our paper carriers go through seven days a week — no vacation, no holidays — and only a small tip? Come on. I live on Social Security only, but I mail my tip of $20 every month. I’m not bragging, but who can’t afford $5 a week for your paper person? Believe me, they earn every dollar, and we all can afford to tip them. Think about it please.
