Shrugging Atlas: I liked how he was letting people just hang out at his house after Sandy...letting them use the power to charge cellphones and whatnot.

There was something about that....well beyond just your typical "I'm doing this for the PR/Political impact."

He helped a young family fix up his garage and is letting them stay there until they get back on their feet. There youngest boy Theo (4 years old) had a speech impediment. Booker diagnosed him as having a hearing impairment and taught him basic sign language; spent a whole night talking with the father and got him to give up his drinking addiction and taught the mother some mindfulness mediation techniques to deal with her pain management until he can find a cure for her condition.

As I understand it you automatically get a brand new Cadillac and refrigerator (although it comes at the expense of 13 kids out of wedlock).

...or so I'm told.
