  1. It’s nice seeing some positive press for a change that isn’t directly tied to promotions. Though paying one’s taxes is pretty much expected from everyone, it’s still nice to be acknowledged for doing one’s civic duty.

  2. Not gonna lie, I laughed when I read this. It’s just a really random thing to hear about YB. Hahaha

    But yay for him! What a great role model. My bias can do no wrong. 😀
