    I don't think it's bad form to want this award. It would only be bad form if you toned down your advice to help get it - e.g. if you failed to bring to our attention if Morgan Stanley brought out a bad product the week before the awards...

    I love these variable quotes!

    But not sure what to make of:

    "Give me chastity and continence, but not yet."


    I know these Saints can be a weird bunch, but asking to remain incontinent seems to be going a bit far with the ol' self-mortification.

    Martin isn't the type of person to be bought by the rewards of success.

    Even when he joins the board of Morgan Stanley, he'll refuse to have a company chaffeur but instead drive the Daimler himself.
