Should he steal the medicine to save his wife?

Hopefully soon I'll get a chance to read Katherine Greider's The Big Fix. There's a one page excerpt from it here, and I love the first paragraph of it:

"Researchers studying the moral development of children sometimes ask them to consider a hypothetical known as the Heinz dilemma. It goes like this: Heinz's wife is very sick. If she doesn't get a certain medicine, she's sure to die. The trouble is the medicine's so costly Heinz can't possibly afford it. Should he steal the medicine to save his wife?"

But right now i'm slowly but surely getting through Lawrence Lessig's The Future of Ideas. 20 pages in for now... truckin' along. And William Greider's "The Soul of Capitalism" looks fascinating too.
