I love Bill Morem’s column! Last Thursday and Friday topped it all.
On Thursday, Morem told a heart-rending story of a 50-year-old woman who has been suffering 20 years through a near-fatal accident, during which time she had neglected to pay two minor traffic ticket fines in Phoenix — which over the years totaled $900 in fines.
She was going to lose her license. She kept working to eke out an existence and pay off the fines. She also needed an artificial hip replacement. Bill Morem suggested that perhaps an attorney could help her for free.
On Friday he wrote that almost a dozen lawyers and law firms had called him and that a female attorney had not only offered her services, but had also paid the fines.

The kicker in all this is that without Bill Morem’s wonderful column, no community rescue would have taken place. So kudos to Morem for his exceptional journalism and to The Tribune for having such a special journalist aboard.
