Where talk is not cheap

A week ago the Washington Post ran a story titled At the Washington Speakers Bureau, Talk Isn’t Cheap. It discussed how a former official can have another lucrative career on the public speaking circuit. That story struck me as an example of the well-known Matthew Effect (25:29) that:

 “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath.”

No one said that life was fair. The image came from Wikimedia Commons.
