    Kind thanks for sharing the piece, Chris. I’m a longtime reader of your blog and you may recall we dialogued years ago when I was helping several clients during the Spitzer wars and media obsessions over executive compensation. Lots to kick around on this topic of course, so please count me in if there’s ever opportunity or forum in your work to do so. Best, Jim
