Most years wait until about May for their required cabbie-returns-valuable-thing story. Not 2010! It's got in there early with the tale of Mukul Asadujjaman, a Bangladeshi cab driver who drove 50 miles to an address he found with the money.
The cash, according to the BBC, belonged to an Italian grandmother visiting the US. Felicia Lettieri, 72, was carrying the passports, jewelry and cash for a group of relatives (the lesson here is perhaps not to give all your valuables to the most elderly person). Asadujjaman, a medical student, refused a reward, saying his Muslim faith would not allow it. Which is some sorely needed good PR for the religion.
