Small town boy makes good!

Here's a warm hearted story from Boston (scroll down):
Newly minted multimillionaire Bill Clinton is apparently making the most of his Bush tax cut. The ex-President strolled into the Alpha Omega jewelry store in Harvard Square Tuesday afternoon and, Lowdown hears, plunked down $10,000 for a stunning diamond necklace - and $20,000 more for a whole bunch of other baubles. Lowdown hears that Clinton couldn't resist chatting up fellow shoppers about the nuances of, oh, U.S. policy on Syria and Turkey. "I love Istanbul," he announced. "I've never had a bad time there." The mind reels. Two hours later and $30,000 lighter, Bill finally left the store with an armful of bags and greeted a mob of fans outside. Asked yesterday if she has seen the necklace, Hillary muttered: "I'm not going to talk to you about that," and walked away.
Ruh oh!
