To the editor: There was a time when most worked for their wealth, a few would welch, and we all went out to help everybody. Then we all wanted to be wealthy, including the welcher, and nobody would be helpless. So we all worked to be wealthy, ignored the welcher, and helped only the helpless. Soon we made somebody else wealthy, envied the welcher and let the wealthy help the helpless.
Now we despise the wealthy, cater to the welcher and ignore the helpless. Eventually, we will penalize the wealthy, subsidize the welcher and euthanize the helpless.
