"I was wondering, would it be okay if I made a list of those I didn't harm instead? I mean, for the sake of efficiency."
"I don't see why not, Ivan. But what have you done about the amends?"
"Plenty! I just made a huge contribution to the women working at my Foxconn factory in China."
"Good for you, Ivan! Did you raise their pay?"
"Uh " that never occurred to me. But I did fund a new suicide net out of my own pocket and it's already caught six girl missiles. Does that count?"
"Sure it does. You kept those girls from hitting rock bottom."
"Hi, my name is Donald and I'm a greedaholic."
"I can't help myself; I still want all the money. I live in constant dread that someone, somewhere, is a dollar richer than I am. Am I going to hell?"

Can you wait until the strike date?'"
"Well, did he?"
"Yup. I cut him in for half. But I felt so bad about it I snorted up all the profits."
"You're a hard case, Dick. But we all have our sad stories and the answer for all of us is the same. We must put our fate in the hands of a higher power."
