Rich Man, Poor Man

On the front page of today's Boston Globe, there are two stories with interesting parallels. One is the story of a 13 year old boy who, along with another 13 year old and and a 20 year old, murdered his drug-dealing half-brother, stole $10,000, and set fire to the body.

The other story deals with Bernie Madoff, the Wall St. investment artist who bilked some of the largest investors in the world out of $50 billion, bringing major charitable foundations to ruin.

In this holiday season, it's good to remember the basic human qualities we all share.
