    Good for him! I love his voice. He sounds like an 80 year old man!

    Great story. Thanks for sharing. He's a real inspiration, and it's wonderful to see the media showing a positive story like this.

      Oooh. He sounds like a voice actor in one of my favorite audio dramas. :) I wonder if the newscasters were laughing at his voice or him...

      Goodness, 17 and owns a grocery store working for a good cause. Great for him.

        Better hope Wal-Mart doesnt see that story.. They will put a Super Center 15 minutes out of town to run him out of buisness.

            I dont think Wal-Mart is evil.. They are doing the People of China a great service by providing them with jobs.

              Great story.

              But the kid did sound a bit older than his age.

              And if wal-mart did come in I would hope they buy the kid out so he can go on to college. Having a wal-mart probably would help the people of the town. Looked to be mostly retired types.

                      And what are this good soul's chances of competing with the super Wal Mart 6 miles away in neighboring Superior? They'll undercut his American dream by at least 5% or your money back.

                        That's a fantastic story. Well played Mose.
