Sweetest Girl - Wyclef Jean
by Brian ORoark `

Money can make even the best of us go bad.  Wyclef Jean describes the transformation of one of his friends from the “sweetest girl” to a life of prostitution.  The allure of money, perhaps in an attempt to get out of poverty, perhaps just as a way to make more money changed his friend to someone he never thought she would become.  Perhaps the pursuit of self-interest at the time wasn’t all it was cracked up to be?
