Follow Up on "Who Do You Trust" Blog

Several weeks ago on his blog Rich discussed one of the key challenges people are wrestling with today: “Who do you trust.” The blog included an invitation for readers to send us nominees.  Thanks to all who did so.  We’ve complied a great list of diverse individuals ranging from politicians and spiritual leaders, to a forest supervisor and film director.  These are leaders who people do trust. They deserve to be recognized.
