Let an armored truck's door pop open and a package with seventeen million bucks pop out on the street, I would probably pause for an instant before I called the cops to turn it back. The pause would be because I would think that with all that money I would never have to do anything again to make a dime.

However, Auntdot is not a saint, but she is not a crook. And I think the brief interlude between me taking up the bag and calling the police would be a debate about whether just finding some lost money and keeping it was dishonest.

I am still not sure about the outcome of that debate, but I just would not feel right keeping the stuff.

And turn it in I would do, darn it.

But put a hair in a meal, or any other sort of object, my gosh.

I would hope I would have gotten a decent reward for return of the seventeen million dollars though.

Before criticizing a person, walk a mile in his shoes - then you are a mile away and you have his shoes!
