> A sleek, black Samsung cell phone emblazoned with "Google."

Isn't Google the company with the motto: "Do No Evil?"

Wonder if they really mean it, or it's just for show?

There is no need to wonder is a company is evil because their logo appears on every phone that runs their operating system. Finding the phone may have seemed like a gift from God, but it was actually a test from God.

Curious, this article states the candidate asked Bernstein, "why she couldn't see the sign any longer", but Bernstein lives around the corner on a long dead-end street. Did Kiraly place the missing phone next to her campaign sign and later ask Bernstein to go searching for it?

Also curious, this article does not mention that Bernstein ran against Woodell's wife the year before, and lost. Bernstein and Kiraly both previously ran for office and lost. Bernstein states, "I wish it didn't happen to me", and turned the phone over to the police to investigate. The reporter complains that the case didn't appear in the daily crime log, and the story was written and published before the police reported the incident. Was this story manufactured and leaked to the press to generated free publicity for Kiraly's campaign?
