Thankfully I don't have to worry about it, but the day my wife has anything to say about what I drive is a signal that our marriage isn't working

Well, it's one of those couples where the husband has a number of years and 50+ points of IQ on his wife, but is madly in love with her (or perhaps with her body). The wife doesn't seem to be equally passionate about the husband, but does seem to be quite fond of the good things in life that he can provide. We'll see how they are doing 5 years from now...

Re: LBYM CEO style

Interesting that CEO's are still fair game for prejudice.

I've known quite a few now. They're human, and frankly, usually quite a few cuts above those who aren't CEO's, from a standpoint of wisdom and productivity. Just people, and usually very high quality people. We just read most about the bad ones ... the guys and gals everyone loves to hate.

Lots of CEO's for medium and small companies as well, who are likely making much, much less than you think.

Heck ... I've known a number who would envy the pension packages of some government and union workers.

The ones I've known usually enjoy a fine car, and after the hours they put in, not to mention the crap they take ... deserve it.
