    BD, take the check. You don’t have to deposit it.

    War-buddy relationships. There’s something mystically wonderful about them. I’ve never served in the military, having been granted a 4-D classification (I was a seminary student), but now I admire the guys who served in Nam. I disagreed with the mission, but not with the guys who served our country out of their own conscientious convictions. War is still hell, though.

    Given what little we know about Ray’s true situation it might in-deed be all he can scrape up or just what makes sense to him in he current mental situaltion. Hopefully, BD will think back on all that Ray has done for him and just take the check and let Ray keep his pride. BD has been through some of this himself.

    B.D. is probably calculating that if he accepts Ray’s check, he’ll be guaranteeing him a rental contract for $365 a year. (At least that’s how a good capitalist would think. Who’s the capitalist here, Ray or B.D.? Capitalists always feel more comfortable with contracts than with unspecified obligations.)

    Valuable insight, palin drome: Capitalists always feel more comfortable with contracts than with unspecified obligations. Is that why those who have the least are so often the most generous with others?

    Let Ray keep his dignity. One day BD will pull that check from his desk drawer and it will be worth alot more.

    Well said. I’ve also found the same to be true.

    If no one you know or care about are the ones getting hurt, then a lot.

    20 years down the road, when PTSD continues to make Ray incapable of making a living or managing his disability pay, continuing dependence upon family, strangers & friends may not be so patiently tolerated.

    I agree with the psittacid.
