No, Heinz will get into trouble. The druggist isn’t bad. He has a right to make money. Yes, it’s okay. It’s not worth that much money. His wife needs it. He has to steal it to save her.No, stealing is bad. And it’s not his fault the druggist is greedy. But it’s still wrong. Yes, it’s what he has to do as a good husband He can’t let his wife die. He’s responsible.No, although you can’t blame him, you can’t have people defying the law when they feel justified- consider the community values. Yes, it isn’t right, but it is justified. To preserve the life of his wife has greater moral justification than the rule not to steal.

Dad: Looks like something is bugging you.Tak: Yeah… I got a bad grade on the History test.Dad: Oh… that’s too bad. Why don’t you ask the teacher for another chance at the test?Tak: You mean take the test all over again.Dad: Yep. And next time, be sure to study. You need to study for a test if you want to get a good grade.Tak: Yeah. I know that. The problem is that I did study for it.Dad: Well, you probably didn’t study long enough. Listen to my advice; you need to study at least a couple of hours to do well on any classroom test. And, you have to have a good quiet place to study- not the kitchen table. And having a study partner is really good.Tak: My buddy, Arturo studied with me.Dad: No wonder. That won’t work. You need a tutor or an adult to help you. You should get a tutor or your Mom to help you. Yep. That always was what I did.Tak: Really? How’d you do on tests? Did you get good History grades?Dad: What? Don’t worry about that. Just be sure you study the right way for the next test.
Sumi: Hey. I just got back from camping with my family. We went to Lake Tahoe.Zashe: We were at the lake a month or two ago. We camped out too. My uncle taught me how to fish. It was cool; I caught more than he did. He was the expert, but I caught the most fish. The lake is real nice. I really like it… especially camping by it. I learned how to start a fire… a campfire from scratch. We did our cooking on the campfire. Hot dogs, s’mores, and even coffee for the adults.Sumi: Uh… we did a fire too.Zashe: It was great! I wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed two weeks. I didn’t want to go home. My cousin hid when it was time to leave! We couldn’t find him for 15 minutes. He just didn’t want to go home. Boy, that fish was good to eat too. We ate a whole bunch. Fried with some green onions. Yum! I got a new fishing pole too. I had an old one but this was a new model. Really cool. Caught a lot of fish. You know, there’s a lot of different fish in that lake.Sumi: I like fishing too. I caught…Zashe: Big mouth bass. That’s my favorite. There were some of those too. I got some. My uncle caught some too. I didn’t like cleaning them though. Too messy and slippery. But I had to clean my own fish. Yuk. But yum to eat later! We saw some deer up there too. A mother and two fawns walked right pass our camp. Oh well, it’s getting late. I have to go now. Thanks for telling me about your trip.
