Mr. Quick felt victimized- He was, by himself. He took the money and then had remorse. Not that Mr. Rosenberg is a great human being, but at least he paid Mr. Quick. Victimization is becoming a natural way of life for too many people. Mr. Quick never had to put himself in the position he found himself. He victimized himself. And before any cries that he was poor and had no other way out, I say hogwash. This decision must have been par for the course for Mr. Quick.

And, what kind of person does this? It happens all over America when money is the standard for success. Why do we build weapons to kill each other? So someone can make money. Why do so many people lie, cheat and steal? So they can make lots of money. I'm never surprised when I hear people doing unscrupulous things for money. Our next president will spend $600- 800 million for a $400,000 job. Why? Clinton was broke and after being president he's worth 100's of millions of dollars. It's all about power and greed. The American Way!

The government and the medical community need to end the needless deaths of people waiting for organ transplants by allowing qualified organ donors to be paid. Everyone in the organ transplant business (yes, medicine is a business) is paid except organ donors. Unfortunately, altruism is not enough to meet the need for organ donations. Stop the unwarranted deaths! Allow qualified organ donors to be paid a moderate sum. It is not moral to arbitrarily have thousands of people die each year waiting for an organ donation.
