Re: Wow

I hate to break this to you, but the people ignoring inconvenient facts in order to carry on being paid large sums are widely represented -- the overwhelming majority in fact - of human beings on the planet. The fact that you and I don't do it has more to do with opportunity than moral uprightness. "Virtue untested is no virtue at all", as someone once said. (OK of course there are some fine upstanding people who would walk away from a well-paid job with no prospect of getting more than 50% as much pay in their lives on the basis of moral principle, but there's a reason why concepts of "saints" and "heroes" strongly focus on their unusualness.
