I've often wondered if my honesty has a price tag. What would I do if I found a hugh amount of money? I think I'd return it if ID was included in the money and I could put a face to cash lost. But two envelopes of cash from a casino,..? I think I'd fail that one.

If somebody was stupid enough to lose that amount of money, it's mine. Stupidity has a price and sexy, hot, and trim women like myself will benefit from it. I'd use the money to try to buy myself a personality.

i would do the right thing and contact him telling him i found his two envelopes then i would ask about the reward.When he told me i would be getting something like maybe a hundred dollars or so i would say oops,i only found one envelope and i dont accept rewards for doing a good deed.

The sad part of the story is that it only made the news because he was honest.

The concept of Karma has some truth to it. Positive things will come to those who perform positive deeds.

WTF? Why is that "the sad part" of the story? Of course that's why it made the news. If the headlines read 'Man Finds $10k at Airport and Keeps it'- Then the "sad part" would be that it only made the News because the man was DIS-honest. There's a difference you know.

I call bullshit..you can NOT take 10,000 dollars on a flight. It isn't permitted. Sorry, bullshit story. look it up. Sure it's just another bull crap rule that exists but it DOES exist.

There is no limit on Domestic flights. On international flights amounts of 10k or more must be declared on customs forms.

On domestic flights, any amount of cash (or anything else for that matter) can be confiscated if it appears to be "suspicious" (for example hidden in "secret" compartments). It is not uncommon for gambler's (especially poker tournement players) to carry large amounts of cash to Las Vegas or Atlantic City. The "BS" call won't stand up.
