• Nice story in California’s Press-Enterprise about how when canyon fires in Corona forced people from their homes, a number of them found themselves in a parking lot of a local Ralphs grocery store. Which was when management and employees of the store told the residents, “If you’re hungry, take anything you’d like,” asking only that they give staff the barcodes “so they could keep track for inventory.”

Assistant Manager Michael Soria explained it this way: “Honestly, that’s why we do this … We do this because we’re part of the community.”
