In 1969, I was on my way to the subway in Times Square,
to go home, late at nite; the streets were almost empty,
around 44th Street n 8th Ave. A young couple, guy n girl,
were walking in the opposite direction,
on the other side, east side, of 8th Ave.
The guy crossed the street and he humbly & avidly besought me
to rescue him with some loose change to help get them home.
He admitted to not having enuf cash to get his girlfriend home.
, I brushed him off. I heard his girlfriend condemn him with scorn
Upon reflection, within c.15 minutes thereafter, I felt sad about my choice
to be ungenerous with him, exposing him to the disdain of his girlfriend
(tho, actually: that 'd be a good education
qua her nature).
I felt that the exercise of my sovereign property rights had not been optimally
chosen in that circumstance. I felt sad. I even returned to the scene,
but of course thay were gone by then.
Maybe around 3 years thereafter, within a mile of this site,
I ran into them again, in the daytime. Of course, thay did not remember me.
The guy begged me for financing as he had done those few years b4.
I gave him a few $$
