DVDD For the newbies,........like me in Chat Posted June 15, 2006 It's a good point, Ken. A co-worker of my wife has an acquaintance who's married to someone who in Vegas slang is sometimes called a "runner." He places cash bets at different casinos for rich people who, for whatever reason (they maybe in the Black Book, inclusion within which bars you for LIFE from setting foot in a NV casino) don't want to do it themselves. This dude lost $200,000+ in cash. He parked and went into a convenience store to get beer or whatever and when he came back, the money was gone. I thought to myself, if I saw a bag sitting on the ground and picked it up, with no one around to see me, opened it and found it had $200K in cash, what would I do? Keep every fucking cent!!! That's what. But that's completely different than taking bribes. That's just God making a donation to me (and He's in the major minus column with moi). And I wouldn't even lose sleep about it. (The next day I'd have one of those 500lb safes delivered to the house...) The Germans have a saying: Opportunity makes thieves." But again, gettin' lucky is entirely different than stealing or selling your friggin' vote. LFC took the words right out of my mouth, it's sad to see men like that go bad. But I wonder how any of us would react if a couple of million dollars were flashed under our nose?
