Trust

What is it with trust, anyway?  If you type it into Google you get an entry on trust law which is of course a system designed to address a situation when trust has been broken.  Under that, you find a Wikipedia entry which first defines trust as “reliance on another person or entity” and then immediately thereafter defines misplaced trust.  Third is a reference to a movie called Trust which is clearly about someone who does not deserve trust.

How sad that the concept of trust is so ephemeral that it is defined more by its absence or betrayal than by its nature.
