Principles are usually bad? How? To the editor: After reading the column "Big Oil doesn't pay its own cost of business," I sat in disbelief and asked myself how such an intelligent person could write something as shocking as principles being a bad idea, except for "half" of the Ten Commandments. I say, hogwash! However, according to Robert Gary, principles are not just a bad idea, but also "tools of make-believe school. " I tried to imagine a society, a world, without principles.

We heard it first from Adam Smith, then from Milton Friedman, then from Ivan Boesky, and now finally from George Michael, so how could I disagree that "greed is good?" And I don't, for the most part. But, as they said in "My Fair Lady:" "I think you picked a poor example. " The oil companies are not where you want to make your Econ 101 "Greed is good" case. It's more like the examples offered by Adam Smith - the butcher, the baker, the candlestick-maker. In short, the craftsman/artisans can be as greedy as they like and never harm society - the more they sell the more good they do. Adam, Milt, Ivan, and George should be followed right down the line for this sort of economic actor.

"In the beginning God set forth principles that are unchangeable. He gave us laws and principles for our good. Laws can be changed but not principles. The definition of a principle: A primary or basic rule or doctrine, spoken into existence by God; the truth; the foundation for all other truths; a settled rule of action or conduct; unchangeable. God never made it a law that it must be 'one man, one woman'; He made it an unchangeable principle - period. " - Hagerstown "Several Mail Callers seem to believe Chris Shank's hyperbole along with his uncompromising position will somehow deliver good things for Washington County and for you. You need a lesson in reality.
