Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.

Mitch

I read a news article about a traveler named Mitch Gilbert, of Greenwood Village, Colorado, who found $10,000 cash in envelopes in a cab at the Las Vegas airport. He was able to finally get the money returned to the rightful owner. 

I was able to find Mitch's phone number on the internet because he has a business.  I talked to him a few minutes ago and congratulated him on his honesty. I told him I would have done the same thing. I don't like having things that don't belong to me, things I haven't earned, purchased or been properly gifted. He told me that he has got a lot of negative feedback from people, including an e-mail that cussed him out!

I don't understand how anyone could have a negative reaction to such a refreshing act of honesty.

Wow.

That's ridiculous. Honesty is one of the most important (and rapidly declining) virtues.

Shouldn't it be an odd thing that money ISN'T returned? instead it's an odd thing if it IS returned...

If someone finds a puppy they usually go to the trouble trying to find the owner. If you found a little boy named Benny or Frankie, you wouldn't say, "Ah! Here is a little lost boy, he's now mine!".
So if you found a container of 100 Benjamin Franklins that didn't belong to you, it would make sense to find their owner.
