Wannabe writer Ray Dolin decided to launch his literary career by writing a book called The Kindness Of America based on his experiences as a peniless hitch hiker trying to hitch hike his way across the USA (reports don’t tell us whether he plucked his eyebrows on the way) and the acts of kindness be would surely receive from total strangers.
About half way through his coast to coast jouney Dolin was standing by US Interstate Highway 2 in Montana trying to catch a ride when a man drove up, rolled down his window, shot him and drove off, The Valley County Sheriff’s Office reports.
Mr Dolin had approached the truck thinking the driver was offering him a ride, the sheriff said.
The unfortunate hitch hiker flagged down a passer-by and was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries. A nurse said on behalf of Mr. Dolin that he was not taking calls or accepting gifts, flowers, snacks or other acts of kindness from stangers.
