I got a $260 ticket in Portland for not turning into the closest lane. Lamest ticket ever, right? So what do I plea at my court date, and how do I plea it? [more inside]

I come from a family where we didn't have so much. My parents were ok but tight.
I studied until 32 years old, did a master degree and now I have a good job that pays me well and I earn twice what my parents are earning together. And I can see that my salary is going to grow fast over the next years. The more I earn, the worst I feel. It's like I don't deserve so much. But believe me, I worked hard at school, paid all my tuition myself by working part-time while studying. But I still live like when I was earning 30k$ per year. The extra, I save it, I don't spend much. So I have now a huge saving account instead of enjoying except for travelling.
By the way, my parents never made any bad comment about my situation. They are proud of me, not jealous at all. So it's all in my head. I feel bad also because a lot of people struggles, don't have job or has to go to charity for food. My friends earn about the same as me so nobody's jaleous.
I would like to feel proud of making money instead of feeling guilty. What should I think so that I can feel proud?
Thanks for your help!

i have a fantastically old cat (18) who unfortunately isn't so fantastic anymore. he has pretty bad cataracts and diabetes. he regularly attacks and mewls at the other pets (one cat, one dog), charges and mewls at any visitor who is not me, and spends his day either under the bed or in the closet. oh, and he pees everywhere. literally, everywhere. my bed. the floor. the table. the carpet. the closet. the couch. i regularly discover new pee spots. he has his own litter box, it is cleaned regularly. it doesn't matter. he's confused, he drinks an insane amount of water thanks to the diabetes, he can't see too well and he pees.

I just ran a red light in Brooklyn and was pulled over by police. I was given a ticket and the officer urged me to plead not guilty and to attend the scheduled court date and pay the citation otherwise I'd be hit with 6 points to my license. Why did the officer recommend pleading not guilty? And what should I expect in a Brookly TVB court? [more inside]

Why do defense attorneys defend those who are clearly
guilty? Do they have no conscience? Do they do it for fame? Do they do it for the easy money (will get paid even though the verdict will definitely be guilty)?
