Cruelty is an attention freak that seizes the spotlight. War, shootings, political vendettas; that lady at RiteAid who saw me on a particularly bad hair day and asked, 'Is it Halloween?' Thankfully, we're in that softer, gentler time of year, when we can push cruelty aside for a few moments and turn our attention to the milk of human kindness. 'How far that little candle throws its beams!' wrote our pal Shakespeare in 'Merchant of Venice.' 'So shines a good deed in a naughty world.' And so we share a delightful little ritual from Orange County Supervisor Doug Chaffee's office: The Kindness Awards, which are now four years old.
