While browsing the www.cityethics.org site I found their "Quote of the Day"
"[With respect to ethics,] I always say the law is the floor, not the ceiling.”
—Judy Nadler, senior fellow in government ethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, and author of the Her Honor blog, quoted in a Friday New York Times article. This is a good way to put this essential difference between law and ethics, a concept that is far too little recognized or understood."
by Judy Nadler, in describing her the City Ethics site linked to an article in the New York Times titled "Doing the Right Thing, Whatever That Is" I loved the title, and also loved the article, please click on the link and spend 5 minutes or so learning what Ethics is NOT as well as how to be as ethical as possible.
