Ed Goldman: Reviewing a year’s worth of people columns, Part 2

One of my favorite people columns this year (3/22/18) concerned Sacramento native Dave Toof, a longtime checker at Corti Brothers, who enjoys taking photos of retail businesses and posting them online, garnering millions of ad hits for the companies — and zero compensation for him.
