Though all of us love money, we are equal in our hatred for accounts! So we want the money, but not the headache of maintaining accounts, correct?

Of course the most arrogant statement is ‘by the time you graduate from Harvard and mix with the world you will realise that you are dealing with people much inferior to you’ – or something to that effect. Not sure if I should call it Bostonian or Hitlerian…(oops!). Well, i still maintain it is a good article if it can make you think…He did make me think, and i loved the futility of learning modesty from an American. Reminds me of what an American kid wrote about being poor. He said ‘they are very poor’. Their cook is poor, and their driver is also poor. Learning modesty from an American. chuckle, chuckle.
