Gandhi and Olives

As Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi stepped aboard a train one day, one of his shoes slipped of and landed on the track. He was unable to retrieve it as the train had already started to move. To the amazement of his companions, Gandhi calmly took off his other shoe and threw it back along the track to land close to the first, with the comment, "The poor man who finds the shoe lying on the track will now have a pair he can use."

---Adapted from "The Little, Brown Book of Anecdotes"


On a different note, yesterday, Jewish settlers in the West Bank city of Nablus chopped down hundreds of the town's olive trees. Olive trees are the main source of income for 5,000 Palestinian residents.

More than 245,000 Jewish settlers live in the West Bank, home to 2.4 million Palestinians.
