This sort of thing has been going on for years, and has always disgusted me. Who would put drug money on a table in a public place? Actually, I
think it would have been better for the benefactor to have found a better way to deliver such a large sum of money to the woman anonymously, but
still, nothing wrong with giving away money. There is a level at which a large monetary gift must be declared on taxes, but I think it's more than
I heard another story a few years back in which a man was making I think agricultural purchases (no, not that; legitimate agricultural purchases!) in
Mexico, and had to deal in a cash-only basis, and had his money confiscated. It's pretty obvious to me that the authorities don't actually believe
they are confiscating drug money in such cases, but are just doing it because they can, using the great new Amerikan ideal of "guilty until proven
innocent" as an excuse.
Good to see someone fighting back. I like to see publicity on the internet and in other media making a difference, as in the recent "pink slime"
debacle, and hope something comes of this for the good, since it is really a more important issue than pink slime, as nasty as pink slime can be...
