A lot of areas in the Rocky Mountains have problems with beavers gnawing trees. But this state has a much bigger problem with humans who are busy as beavers gnawing away at large sums of money that belong to their neighbors. The story linked below contains an interesting line: “…it’s just the latest in a series of extraordinary embezzlement cases throughout the Fifth Judicial District, which includes Eagle, Summit, Clear Creek and Lake counties.”
It’s sad to think about, but these areas include some pretty ritzy communities with million dollar vacation homes. It must be that people put in a position of trust handling large sums of money just somehow think they’re entitled. Why shouldn’t rich people just allow us to wander through their bank accounts at will? What right do they have to complain?
