Drunk client for one of the criminal defence lawyers. Meet him outside the building, smoking. Me, not him.

He asks for one. Give him two, so he has an extra for later.

We go into building together. Forgot that he was accompanied by friend, not drunk. Immediately goes over and gives friend the second cigarette, before going upstairs to find out the range of sentence he is likely to face.

Several recent research studies showing that the poor are more generous than the rich. One expanded conclusion:

A PhD candidate at Berkeley, Paul Piff, recently repeated that finding – and more: “lower-income people were more generous, charitable, trusting and helpful to others than were those with more wealth. They were more attuned to the needs of others and more committed generally to the values of egalitarianism.”
