Drive-Thru Do-Gooding

AQdrivethru150.jpgThe New York Times investigates the trend of paying it forward at the drive-through, which some fast-food operators report often happens "several times a day." Calling the practice "goodness gone viral," paying for other drivers' fast food allows the giver to remain completely anonymous in their generosity.
