The Value of Money

A motorist driving by a Texas ranch hit and killed a calf that was
crossing the road.  The driver went to the owner of the calf and
explained what had happened.  He then asked what the animal was worth.

 "Oh, about $200 today," said the rancher.  "But in six years it
would have been worth $900.  So $900 is what I'm out."

 The motorist sat down and wrote out a check and handed it to the

 "Here," he said, "is the check for $900.  It is postdated six years
from now."
