After all of the awful that has been this week's news, a nice story is in order. This is the story of Debbie Dills, a North Carolina florist who just happened to leave late for work, and noticed Dylann Roof's car, and then the haircut of the guy inside.

After calling 911, she followed him for 35 miles or so until police finally pulled him over. She's braver than I am. I would have called 911 and let the police take over from there, but she decided she needed to stay with him.

It's good to see people doing good deeds, especially in the face of such abject evil this week.

Can you help us out?
