Situational Ethics: Trump family/staffers registered to vote in two states

As Donald Trump told ABC’s David Muir Wednesday a couple of days ago,
“You have people that are registered who are dead, who are illegals, who are in two states. You have people registered in two states. They’re registered in a New York and a New Jersey. They vote twice. There are millions of votes, in my opinion."
The Washington Post has identified four Trump family members or top administration appointees who were registered in two states during last fall’s election, including Chief White House Strategist Stephen K. Bannon, Tiffany Trump, the president’s youngest daughter, Treasury Secretary nominee Steven Mnuchin, and son-in-law (and top adviser), Jared Kushner.

Jim Thompson on bucking the tide

This inspiring quote comes from Jim Thompson's last story.

"Would they do it?" I said. "How can you be sure they would, Mr. Krutz? Have you ever thought about the potential in a crusade for not doing the things that someone else would do if you didn't?"

A few seconds later, the narrator brutally murders Mr. Krutz. OK--in light of later developments, maybe it's not so inspiring. You have to admit, 'though, that sentence "Have you ever thought..." is pretty good.
