Post-A-Clef

A question of ethics:

Say you’re an artist and you need 1,000 lbs. of tile (valued at approximately $150,000) to complete a mosaic. The mosaic in question is an astounding tour-de-force that you’ve been blood-sweat-tears working towards for ages. Maybe even obsessively. But who cares because this mosaic will revolutionize the mosaic industry. You are also government-certified impoverished and can’t afford to purchase the remaining tile.

However, you have a friend who works in a quarry and offers to hook you up with the $150,000 materials. The quarry, as it is intended, supplies building materials to Gitmo and country clubs. In order to hook you up, your friend will have to wheel-and-deal beyond reason. But the friend doesn’t mind on account of some head-over-heels affections for you. Except for the aforementioned misstep, your friend is an all-around decent person.

Do you take advantage of the offer so that you can, at last, be all that you can be?

  1. I got lost on the aforementioned misstep of the friend, but, for what it’s worth, I would take the help. I’ve spent too many years trying to tough it out on my own as the brave hermit artist, and I, too, am poor. Only recently have I found that having help is good.

  2. ethics shmethics, get the goods while they’re free! then again, this is coming from a person who hid in a sleeping bag in the backseat of a car to get into a campground free of charge.

  3. Indeed, I am just going to suck it up and disregard righteousness because at this point the project is completely controlling its master, heh.
