    Hi, Anderson,

    You always ask the most piercing questions ~ those I would have never thought of, but sure appreciate that you do.

    It occurs to me that so many of the big stories in the news these days share a very disturbing common theme: abuse of trust and power, tolerance and a blind eye toward abuses and abusers, and almost inpenetrable webs of security to preserve the institution by those in power regardless of the sacrifice of vulnerable victims. I believe the "Occuiers" are right in that personal greed is a driver for those who have lost their moral compos, their humanity, their common sense, good ethics and cave to their baser instincts or lend a blind eye to those who do. This could apply to pedaphiles and their superiors in highly lucrative university sports programs, Senators in Congress profiting heavily from insider trading all the while keeping themselves above the law and exempt from consequences that non Congressional Americans would suffer, Wall Street tycoons who use tax-payers bailout monies for their personal profit instead of stabilizing the economy. America is upside-down and will remain so until there's an all out battle against moral and financial corruption. Thank you!
