Interesting and entertaining. Builds towards a climax, especially with the Chief's wise saying at the end. Would have made a great Twilight Zone episode as well.

This is one of the best episodes. The plot line is interesting from start to finish. While there is a heavy-handed moral to the story, it is entertaining. Justice is served!

I'd like a clarification. Your synopsis said 'how much land can the man travel around in a day'. Given the time period, he might choose a horse or a train and that might be really far. Yet if I am not mistaken the story said the man had to walk on foot (or run) in a day, which unless he is an Olympic athlete, is considerably less.
