A salute to a civic-minded Venetian

Accademia newsstand VeniceWe'd like to lift a virtual glass of prosecco to this newsvendor by the Accademia Bridge who saved passersby from the aftermath of a dog's upset stomach.

After the dog vomited on the paving stones, the newsstand operator grabbed a broom, dipped it in the Grand Canal, and washed away the mess. (As for the dog, we hope it learned its lesson and stopped looking for treats in all the wrong places.)
