Dark or Dumb

Rich people don’t tell their secrets. That would be dumb. People want to believe that those with money behave in a certain way. It’s only the poor and depraved that rob, molest, rape, maul or are just plain mean spirited.

We know that’s not true, if you can believe anything in the movies. Everything is true except for what is made up. That is the nature of stories.

So, those with a little cash in their pocket don’t want to say that their children are alcoholics and drug addicts. They don’t want to say an overdose was really an overdose. They want the attention to be diverted, to someone far away, who could be doing God knows what. Talk about them in a negative way. Not that boy who was a cowboy hero. He died with his boots on.

She laid in the bed at the Howard Johnson’s Motel. Her ribs were broke. Her eyes were black. They played cards. We bowled.

Believe what you want.

I’ll believe anything these days. Judge Dearborn, the only probate judge in Jacksonville, Florida had no problem with them committing felony fraud, as long as they put the money back.

I bet people who rob minute markets wish they could get that deal. And why shouldn’t they? It should be the new rule. If you get caught pay the money back and everything is ok. If they could do it, why shouldn’t other people.

White collar crime baby.

Dark or dumb?

*an added thought – Judge Dearborn was plain faced and no emotion. Retired Don Wright. Attorney at law laughed about the theft. He said, any normal family would accept it. They gave the money back. Does that mean that Judge Dearborn and Don Wright can be robbed and if the robber is caught they will plainly accept or laugh and smile and say, “no problem,” just give me my money back.

*For some reason, I don’t think so.
