DOES HONESTY DESERVE A PAY-OFF?
Read this then tell me, when did honesty deserve a pay-off? We used to return lost items to rightful owners because it was the right thing to do. U.S. Savings Bonds can only be cashed by the named owners anyway. Perhaps the bond owner did not wish to cash the bonds and pay taxes now, so he gave the homeless man $100 which could have been a strain for that rightful owner. Now that bond owner is being vilified in the press for not giving the homeless man enough. Yes, the homeless man did a good thing and is deserving of our praise and thanks, but should good deeds finance a person for life?
