Tolerating Cheaters Damages Future For All That was the topic of 'her' column last Wednesday. It kept rolling around in my head, so I figured why not bring it up here since it seems to be a hot topic most days. It covered the usual: cheating, ethics, morals, how our behavior rubs off on others (especially parents-to-children)... One person quoted Robert F. Kennedy (getting political is the last thing on my mind; so that will probably be what most take from this, heh): "Every time we turn our heads the other way when we see the law flouted, when we tolerate what we know to be wrong, when we close our eyes and ears to the corrupt because we are too busy or too frightened, when we fail to speak up and speak out, we strike a blow against freedom and decency and justice." I thought it sounded pretty good. Another person mentioned an interesting word I hadn't heard before: mountebankery "We are assailed by problems that seem insurmountable, and it's easy to become discouraged. But so long as some of us strive to emphasize the need for honesty and instill in our young charges a sense of outrage for injustice, we can avoid what earlier generations called mountebankery, humbug and fraud." -C.R. in Houston I thought that sounded good too Hey, cheating is bad at times in UO; just as it is a major issue at times in everyday life.
