Hooray for Arthur Winston - Employee of the Century

Something about this story is just....well, cool. Here's an America we don't hear about much anymore - hard work, dedication, good living. Imagine the satisfaction of this kind of living. Contrast Arthur's legacy with that of idiot Exxon CEO who walks away with $400M. Who dies the happier man? Maybe the Exxon dude but we don't think so. Here's to Arthur:

"Arthur Winston, the longtime Metropolitan Transportation Authority employee who retired last month at age 100, died in his sleep, his family and the MTA announced Friday....At age 99, he was responsible for a crew of 11 employees who cleaned, maintained and refueled Metro buses. In 1996, Winston received a congressional citation as "Employee of the Century" from President Bill Clinton."
