Did anyone see John Stossel last night?  What a show!  It debunked the
notion that there is something inherently evil and wrong about being
rich and greedy, that people who have amassed wealth also have brought
great benefits to others, that those benefits seem to far out weigh the
negatives, and that these people have not simply taken a larger portion
of the pie, but have increased the size of it.  He essentially showed
that despite the "gut feel" we have that something is wrong or evil
about desiring to be rich (except in the case of government where
people have simply taken a larger piece of the pie), that greed is not
on the same level as theft or other crimes for which we have laws for.
I hope everyone was able to see this show.
