WHAT A TRUE BLUE PURE SOUL
What if you lived in a homeless shelter, had nothing but change in your pocket, then one day found a backpack containing tens of thousands of dollars in cash and traveler’s checks? Would you still “do the right thing?” That’s the same choice Boston vagrant Glen James had. He who also suffered medical problems. Turning in the money, he told police, “Even if I were desperate for money, I would not have kept even a penny.”
HANG THE *ASTARDS!
After trial in February 2013 on fraud charges, the Iranian judiciary sentenced four bankers and their collaborators to death and several others to public floggings for forging loans to buy government property. Total funds lost about the equivalent of $2.6 billion. Yet, that was only a drop in the bucket compared to what investors and customers of large American banks have lost illegally since 2008 through money-laundering and corner-cutting, while not one person has been prosecuted, according to Tehran’s PressTV.ri.
BUT DID HE/SHE RAISE THE LID?
The New York Post (8-6-13) told of ABC News editor Don Ennis, who surprised his colleagues last February by showing up at work one morning wearing a little black dress and a red wig, declaring he had begun hormone therapy and wanted to be called Dawn Ennis. By July, though, she blamed it all on “transient global amnesia,” brought on by marital difficulties, and returned to being Don Ennis. (Hormone-induced hooters and all.)
