“Good Cause” or “Social Contract?”

Well, which is it, because people keep telling me it’s not theft.

From today’s New York Times, page B1:

"Laurel Touby, 44, an entrepreneur based in New York City, [sold], a Web site for job-seeking media and creative
professionals that she had founded in 1996. She sold it for $23 million — leaving $9 million … in her bank account after taxes."

"Edward Bartlett, a 41-year-old accountant in Westminster, Maryland, won $84 million in a lottery last summer — $33 million after taxes."

Oh, don’t tell me. I know. They oughta just keep quiet and count their blessings; stop being so greedy.
