It's a hell of a town

Never mind diamonds- a New York cabbie was a Texas girl's best friend. The driver returned 31 diamond rings he found in his cab after dropping off the passenger, who had left him with a 30-cent tip on a $10.70 fare.

"All my life, I tried to be honest," said Osman Chowdhury, a native of Bangladesh. "Today is no different."

Mr. Chowdhury, you've made us all proud.

As for the skinflint yokel jeweler from Dallas (30 cents on a $10.70 fare?) I think we've all got a pretty vivid mental picture of her.

Back to the sticks with you, honey.
