[The Ethicist] Money Drunk Sun = Lying On Mortgage Application?

For many years my wife and I have read and enjoyed Randy Cohen’s “The Ethicist” column in the New York Times [1]. For the life of me, I can’t believe some of the questions.

Even better, the New York Times now has The Ethicist as a podcast [2], with a new version released every Friday. I pack my iPhone with podcasts and this column is one of my regulars.

This week, I was self-consciously chuckling on the quiet commuter train ride in. It seems that someone was torn by whether or not to lie on their mortgage application.

So much for the differences between right and wrong. It is Memorial Day weekend and we want rays of sunshine!

If you listen to it from now until next Thursday, you can simply click “play” directly off the NYT Podcast pag [2]e. Look for “The Ethicist for 05/23/2008 [2]
