I awakened one night laughing out loud. It seemed such a silly dream. I was going around asking everyone a riddle that I made up:
“How do you tell the good guys from the bad guys?”
“The good guys have a badge.”
How many governors of Illinois are in prison?
How lucky was Scooter Libby to be pardoned?
How many prison guards, policemen, public officers, judges, politicians, school teachers, coaches and others of esteemed position have been prosecuted and imprisoned?
How do you tell the good guys from the bad?
Is anyone all good or all bad? What about all the good accomplishments those public officials, teachers and coaches were responsible for? Were they negated by their criminal behavior? Did it turn them from highly respected servants to scumbags?
How many upstanding citizens have cheated “just a little” on their income tax or failed to disclose a purchase on a Customs form?
