Wis. Woman Values Grandchildren Photos Over Money


Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Norberta Pickett did what so many of us have done. She left something behind in a bathroom. In her case, it was a purse left at the Valley View Mall in La Crosse, Wis., which contained photos of her kids and grandkids. She was crushed.
