DoubleTweeting moolahThursday, March 8th, 2018

Please note, I am not using moolah in the sense in which Arthur Conan Doyle used it in A Desert Drama:
The squat lieutenant, the moolah, and about a dozen Dervishes surrounded the prisoners.
There’s a quality of surprise to the two tweeted stories that follow, which highlights our usual acceptance of the idea that money is value. Consider:
500 Canadian doctors protest pay raises because they already make enough money https://t.co/ZPXDxHZHLN of Canadian doctors demand lower salaries. 700 physicians, residents and medical students from Quebec had signed an online petition asking for their pay raises to be canceled.

And then, from a different angle:
The listed price for food at a New Orleans pop-up stall is $12. But white customers are asked whether they want to pay $30.
The owners says it's to reflect the city's income disparity. https://t.co/byTH15sAn2

Conan Doyle again:
But I am ordered to gather you together, for the moolah is coming to convert you all.
