Making a Fortune by Cheating
One Saturday morning I was working on a movie review when my phone rang. A retired real estate developer from Dallas, Texas was calling me, to thank me for sharing the music of his very famous big-band leader father. He told me a bit about his experiences in construction as the great city of Dallas grew over the past decades. While explaining some of the challenges when dealing with suburb officials, he mentioned times when he tried to convince a city council to pay for a new and better grade of concrete for their sidewalks. He explained that sometimes they would only agree to pay for the cheapest grade of concrete, and he believed in the better grade of concrete so much that he used it anyway, paying the extra cost out of his own pockets. He wanted the homes in his developments to have the best sidewalks possible.
In this Great Depression adventure, we will experience the opposite. Donald Meek is Tom Sheridan, a widower with three grown children, sharing his home with his old-maid sister. He owns a construction company in Toledo, Ohio, and business isn’t booming. Fortunately, he is about to begin building the new city hospital, and money will be flowing in, allowing his family to spend money in the style that they have become accustomed to.
Unfortunately, the man who holds the mortgage on Tom’s home has become partners with the cement contractor for the new hospital. He forces Tom to allow cheaper cement to be used than is being paid for, and as a reward for cheating on the contract, his home will be paid off, and he will get a slice of the money saved. If Tom goes along with the scheme, he will carry the deceit in his heart for the rest of his life, but if he refuses to cheat on the contract, he will lose his home and his business. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
