Letter to the editor:

Greed is not the problem; ethics are

I would like to commend O.T. Neal for his honesty about greed in his recent letter, “‘Greedy’ people can do good work.” There is nothing wrong with being greedy; it is their given right if they so choose.

What is wrong is when rich people are not only greedy, but also they lack ethics or compassion. Instead of paying their fair share of taxes to the country that allowed the free enterprise so they could accumulate their wealth, some people put their money in banks in the Cayman Islands and Europe. There are also rich people who hire illegal immigrants so they do not have to pay the minimum wage and Social Security. Then there are those who also want to eliminate food stamps for the poor and Medicare for the sick.

I am sorry that Mitt Romney appears to be Neal’s idol.
