Commentator Barbara Klein finds printed names on the bottom of paper bags at fast food restaurants. One of the names, "Alan Rumbo," intrigues her. She traces the bag back to its maker, and actually gets to talk to the line worker at the paper bag plant, Rumbo himself, who explains how the name on the millions of bags he makes propelled him to hero status with his kids.
