I agree with you about security and watching out for yourself at a
show. I feel it is imperative to have at least two people working to
be able to cover all the bases when things start getting hectic.
(Hectic is good. it starts a kind of feeding frenzy and the money
I disagree with you about honest people becoming thieves. An honest
person, by definition, is not, and never will be a thief. The
problem is that one never knows who is honest and who is susceptible
to a little part time (or full time) thievery. It would help a lot
if I could bring my dog with me to the shows. She has an innate
understanding of which people mean to do me or my family harm.
Somehow I can't see the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show letting me bring
a 100 pound wolf (my 'dog') with me onto the show floor.
There are real truly honest people left in the world though. If you
dropped a $1000 bill in front of my son, he would pick it up and run
to catch up with you to return it. He learns this type of behavior
Thanks & g'day
