    I know there's been a thread or two posted about this guy and his blogsite, but I found his most recent column perfectly appalling. Definitely not a gentleman, even if he may think himself a WASP. One would like to hope he made it up.

    That tale would bring a single, manly tear of admiration to Harry Flashman's eye.

    Tsk. If it's a true account then the writer is a complete cad. He's also lost his claim to gentlemanly status as one would not publicly brag about such appalling behavior.

    Cordially,

    What a jerk. All of it screams for attention. He posted earlier about making a lot of money because of new clients, shameful.


    I apologize for my foul language earlier.

    Oh, gosh! But Richard is very young and still evolving. And sometimes I wonder if he may just be trying to have a bit of fun with everyone.

    Added after reflection: Yes, this is pretty bad, if he's not just trying to put everyone on. What I hear in that story is the echo of an ethos that permeates popular culture and is even resident in all too many business school graduates I encounter. I.e., "Others do not matter, and I can do anything to get what I want."

    Added after further reflection: The above ethos described is essentially the definition of a sociopath.

    I like some of the pictures he posts. I take his stories with several large grains of salt.

    I don't really know about the type of folks most here have met, but this tale is very much in character with the sort of guy who would create a blog labeled WASP 101.

    Whether he is real or imagined, it does not matter. The people who follow rules are those wanting to join the club. Once in, they act like heathens and use others who follow rules to fix their mistakes.

    It looks like a RL ad.

    It's like a scene from Justine.
