  1. You should add an ethical movie breakdown a month.

    If had more of a knowledge of ethics terminology and analytical processes I’d have fun doing one a week or more often. Tons of movies I watch I end up analyzing from an ethics standpoint and wonder if my mental gyrations were thorough enough OR even correct.

  2. I’ve already lost four friends (two couples w/children) because of that expose, Jack. But they’ll come crawling back some day when they realize that the movie’s lessons on economics are of far more value than the entertainment: they will have saved their home from mortgage defaults by taking on temporary employment as collection agents during hard times, refused personal loans to relatives, understood that insider trading is merely a matter of timing, known not to waste money on frivolities like honeymoons, and recognized that Uncle Billy is the real hero of the story — he knows how to work the system! When they come to me with the olive branch, I will submerge the olives in brine to leach out the oleuropein compound and then explain to them that you are the one they should thank for this financial wisdom.

    Have a delicious, delightful and wholly family-friendly holiday.

  3. Jack: Just watched the video. Thank you, thank you. Provided needed perspective, and a reminder (we all need, I think) about what meaning can make in a life. Go for the meaning; the rest will take care of itself. Leave a legacy – however small in history books – of being the best, most honest, most kind person you can be. If a person manages to come close to that, then his or her life has meaning, and, though I know you hate the term, it really is “paying it forward.”
