<<To kind-of quote SP re social security on the REHP board: “If the government-supported-museum is stupid enough to give me a free day then I'm going to take it.”

I guess SP's ethics depend upon his mood.

I think Im had better tidy up my comment.

What I said is that if the government is dumb enough to pay money to me in benefits when I don't need it, I will take the money and still reserve the right to point out how dumb that is. Social Security and unemployment benefits might be examples.

You are welcome to comment on that if you wish.

The idea of taking advantage of offers of free attendance or a just amount to contribute for admission when such decisions are left to individuals are worth considering, in my view. Obviously, one is not engaged in fraud ---- the decision to pay or how much is clearly left to the individual.

On the credit card board I asked whther people who were struggling to pay off debts should be encouraged to use food banks to enable them to pay off their debts earlier. This occurred to me when walking buy my neighborhood food bank and seeing large quantities of ice cream and bread being thrown out because no one claimed them.

So--- how to decide? These seem like reasonable questions to me.
