JAPANESE MAN'S MONEY SAVED FROM TRASH

According for an April 13 Reuters article, "A Japanese man
wept for joy this week when he recovered 5 million yen ($42,210)
in cash his wife had mistakenly thrown out with the household
rubbish.

The 35-year-old man had withdrawn the money from a bank account
but, fearing it would be stolen, he hid it inside a refuse bag
which he placed in a rubbish bin, Japanese media said.

His wife unknowingly threw out the bag, which was found last
month at a refuse collection point outside an apartment building
in Saitama, north of Tokyo."
