I love stories about people who dare to walk their very own path. This one from The Washington Post is about Neel Kashkari who used to be a high Treasury Department official and who helped create the TARP-program. After seven month of intense work for George Bush and Barack Obama - and after months of sleepless nights, intense stress, never talking to his wife and gaining lots of weight - he resigned.
Now he´s on Washington Detox in northern California. His mission: Build shed, Chop wood, Lose 20 pounds and Help with Hank´s book. Go Neel!
