by James Corbett, The International Forecaster:
This is the problem with criminality. Like a cancer, if it is allowed to fester in one part of society it will, sooner or later, spread to others.
“The weed of crime bears bitter fruit. Crime does not pay. The Shadow knows!” Perhaps you’re old enough to remember this tag line from the 1930s radio dramatization of The Shadow. Or perhaps, like me, you spent your childhood listening to “Those Old Radio Shows” on your local radio station before going to bed every night. Or perhaps you’re only familiar with Woody Allen’s retort that “I think crime pays. The hours are good, you travel a lot.”
