Unbelievable story (http://msnbc.msn.com/id/14024565/?GT1=8307). Homeless man finds 21,000 USD in bonds while going through thrash. He returns them to the shelter, and they find and return the items to the owner. The owner gives the guy $100!!!!

Yeah, so the community thought that was despiccable too, and rallied to donate about 4,000 up to now, mainly from a few big donors. But the headline reads
"Homeless man finds best reward is honesty". That's stretching things a bit. If he cashed in the bonds, he'ld be 17,000 USD ahead. That's a nice car.

Anyway, I always thought that if someone returns you money, you should give them at least 10% of it. In this case, we're not talking about an accidentally dropped wallet that one might hope to recover, but bonds that were thrown out. How does that bond owner live with himself?

Selfish greed knows no bounds.

That's why you need laws to regulate everything from health care, to education, to banking, to employment. If you don't, the majority of people will just screw you over.
