Again with the mid-week posting. Thing is, there is so much going on legalistically that it's hard not to comment on some of the insanity going on. Take, for instance, the article I was reading in Ann Landers today. Seems there's this woman who has a boss who is communicating with a guy in Nigeria. Seems the guy in Nigeria has promised to send boss $40 million if boss will funnel him monies (as in plural). Seems guy in Nigeria keeps saying he'll come to America to bring the check (for $40 million, really?!?) but guy in Nigeria, amazingly, needs more and more money for whatever nefarious purposes.
The problem here is boss is driven by greed. I mean, who really thinks there is anyone in Nigeria (or anywhere else, for that matter) that is just going to hand out $40 million in cash to a stranger for the heck of it? OK, we're not talking about the relationship between the taxpaying citizenry of the USA and the IRS - we're talking about a scam of global proportions and, I gotta tell you, boss is never going to see a dime of "his" $40 million. Ne-ver.
