A stranger leaves a waiter a $25,000 tip to provide for dental surgery. Smiles all around

When Brian Maixner finally looked into a mirror on Tuesday afternoon, he didn’t recognize the man staring back at him.
His face was fuller. The wrinkles in his cheeks were gone. His chin looked more prominent.
And most striking: The smile that for years had been full of big holes and painful infected areas had been replaced with two rows of perfectly straight, white teeth.
Hours after the procedure in Ponca City, Okla., on Tuesday, Maixner was still trying to adjust.
“I’m still in shock,” he said.
Maixner, the cheerful, smiling waiter who is well known to customers at both Doo-Dah Diner, 206 E. Kellogg, and at his previous employer, Ming’s at 1625 S. Seneca, has long struggled with serious dental problems. He never could afford the dental work he needed.
Then, in January, he got a surprise tip from a customer. One Saturday, he waited on out-of-towner Fred Boettcher, who’d had dental problems of his own as a child. Now a successful Ponca City attorney, Boettcher offered to pay for Maixner to get a new smile. He’d done the same for a few other people in the past.
On Monday, Maixner had his remaining bad teeth pulled by Boettcher’s dentist, Phillip Tyndall in Ponca City. On Tuesday, he was fitted with a new set of dentures. In about six to eight months, Maixner said, once the bone heals, the dentist will replace the dentures with dental implants – also a gift from Boettcher.

    George W. Bush: Hillary Clinton is like ‘my sister-in-law’ By Jose A. DelReal December 5 at 10:16 AM
    Former President Bush has spoken at length about his close ties to former President Bill Clinton, at times calling him his "brother from another mother."
    CNN's Candy Crowley asked Bush during an interview published Friday where that leaves Hillary Clinton: "My sister-in-law!" the president responded light-heartedly.

  4. Why does no one question the "program" of FOX AFFILIATES? On their "news" channel they promote "conservative" values and all that. But turn to FOX ENTERTAINMENT and they are pushing GLEE, FAMILY GUY, and numerous other shows propagandizing FOR homosexuality, pedophilia, drug abuse, and all the things FOX NEWS claims to be against. Yet their viewers sit like unquestioning slugs and parrot the PARTY LINE.
    NOW they have "http://latino.foxnews.com/latino/news/2013/09/22/rising-immigrant-deaths-become-burden-for-texan-border-county/" A COMPLETE SELL-OUT of the FOX NEWS followers, this channel SUPPORTS ILLEGALS.
    I have said it before, FOX promotes a PSEUDO-conservative-to-the-point-of-SATIRE view on their news, and FAR LEFT LIBERAL view on their entertainment channels. I watched "BONES" last night (10-9-2014), it was an hour of ANTI-Conservative propaganda/indoctrination. They cast the right-wing airwaves as calous-hate-mongering-mercenaries who not only spread hate and meanness, but do it strictly for the money they can make and do not even "believe" the "foul filth" they spew.
    "BONES" was one long preachy pontification about how evil AND STUPID all conservatives are.even as the "good SCIENTISTS" reveled in minutely examining the putrid remains of the EVIL conservative. "BONES" also groveled over the "BEAUTY" of the main, at best COMMON looking, character, as if she is some beauty queen, actually they went into regular self-love-rapture over ALL their own marvelous BEAUTY, repeatedly praising one-another's "marvelous good looks".

  5. "Quinnipiac University poll" NEVER heard of them before today and the first poll I hear of from them claims that firearm ownership is at an ALL TIME LOW with just 30% of households owning a gun.
