The Associated Press put out this story yesterday about a bank in Fargo, North Dakota, that's giving its full-time employees $1,000–with the stipulation that they "pay it forward" to some charitable cause. They have to document their good deed with a video camera by June 30.
Perhaps most interesting about this whole project is the discussion it has generated online. CNN posted this story to its site yesterday, and many of the comments from readers are pretty cynical.
