'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

"A weekend with the family is a missed marketing opportunity."

Now I don't know that I could ever agree with this kind of statement even partially, never mind wholly, but I do admire the forthrightness and singlemindedness of a certain kind of person who might say this kind of thing.

I don't recall ever having heard the name of Bill Harrison before, but this obituary in today's Telegraph certainly justifies the title "Colourful financier who was known as 'Attila the Brum' " which the newspaper employs in its print edition.

Rest in Peace Mr Harrison, I think you probably deserve it. My sympathies to his family.
