    The local United Way office realized that it had never
    received a donation from the town's most successful
    lawyer. The volunteer in charge of contributions called
    him to persuade him to contribute. "Our research shows
    that out of a yearly income of more than $600,000 you
    give not a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give
    back to the community in some way?"
    The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied,
    "First, Did your research also show that my mother is
    dying after a long illness, and has medical bills that
    are several times her annual income?" Embarrassed, the
    United Way rep mumbled, "Um... No."
    "Second, that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind
    and confined to a wheelchair?" The stricken United Way
    rep began to stammer out an apology but was put off.
    "Third, that my sister's husband died in a traffic accident,"
    the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "Leaving her
    penniless with three children?"
    The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said
    simply, "I had no idea..." On a roll, the lawyer cut
    him off once again, "...And I don't give any money to
    them, so why should I give any to you?!"
