Movie Quotes – Day 321

So that was Mrs. Lundegaard on the floor in there. And I guess that was your accomplice in the wood chipper. And those three people in Brainerd. And for what? For a little bit of money. There’s more to life than a little money, you know. Don’tcha know that? And here ya are, and it’s a beautiful day. Well. I just don’t understand it. — Fargo

Every time we watch the local news and they talk about the horrific crime du jour, Irish Woman almost always looks at me and asks “Don’t people have anything better to do?”.  I tend to agree with her sentiment.  The amount of thought and work it takes to commit a crime, then the trouble of staying out of prison, then the wasted years behind bars or under state supervision, seems to be a bad investment.  Look, I’m not talking about the “He stole bread to feed his children” thief.  I’m talking about the “I’d rather beat up old people for their money and kill witnesses” kind of thug.  Yeah, your average criminal isn’t exactly a degreed professional when he’s looking for a job, but if you just keep your nose clean, there are lots of entry level jobs around.  Entry level, when mixed with hard work and staying out of trouble, translates into something better.  If the trash who choose to rob, steal, loot, and intimidate their way into a prison cell would just figure that out, life would be a lot easier, not only for them, but also for everyone else.
