Atlanta (CNN) -- Jacob Schindler is not your typical American teenager. He spends his days battling kudzu, an invasive plant that has overrun millions of acres of land throughout the Southeastern United States.

Just moments before I saw this post, my wife and I were lamenting the growing lack of interest in reading, declining educational standards and what seems to be a general lack of imagination in a large segment of the school-age population in this country. It was therefore VERY refreshing to read about somebody like this who, although he may well be considered a geeky nerd by many of his friends (just guessing at that), is actually working to make the world a better place. On top of the specifics, it's just so nice to see a news story about something good for a change. Thanks for posting this one, eeek.
