In a corrupt society like Argentina, an honest man is hard to find. Yet, when an elderly couple left $32,500 in his cab, Santiago Gori hunted them down and returned every penny. Stunned by such honesty, Argentines began donating to him via a web site that was set up in his honor. So far the equivalent of $14,580 has been donated, according to the site.
"Thank you", say many of the messages and one said it all: "I wish more people were like you."

Update 5/11/09 - It's just come to my attention of the statement describing Argentina as corrupt. They're not my words (this was a post from the Upcoming Queue, written by the submitter) and I do not agree with such a broad and overreaching statement.
While I will leave the post up in its entirety, I'd like to express my apologies to our Argentinian readers. As a clarification, the statement is not the belief of the blog.
