Spring Break...no, mea cupla... Spring Clean
DCTV Series - Spring Meetings of World Bank and IMF; Karen Hudes, starts this segment with how corruption escalated when Robert McNamara showed up in 1968: "Robert McNamara shaped the Bank as no one before him." - World Bank - Working for a World free of Poverty...
"Did you solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you God... when you delivered your apology?" "Ooh, it makes me wonder... Ooh, it makes me wonder." World Bank whistle blowers whisper to themselves as they read the article below.
Top 10 Apologies
"We were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why." — McNamara, writing in his 1995 memoir, In Retrospect, on the management of the Vietnam War High government leaders aren't generally known for flaunting their errors. But toward the end of his life, former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara issued a string of candid mea culpas for misjudgments about Vietnam that were made during his 1961-68 tenure at the Pentagon, especially his delay in acting on growing doubts that the war could be won. "I'm very sorry that in the process of accomplishing things, I've made errors," McNamara said in Fog of War, an Oscar-winning 2003 documentary. While he never issued a formal apology for his role in the quagmire, McNamara, who died in July 2009 at age 93, made clear he was haunted by the blunders made under his watch that cost the lives of thousands of U.S. troops. "People don't want to admit they made mistakes," he explained to the New York Times. "This is true of the Catholic Church, it's true of companies, it's true of nongovernmental organizations and it's certainly true of political bodies." - Robert McNamara
In my opinion, this is the e pit o me of "buying a stairway to heaven."

"In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke in through trees... and the voices of those who stand looking. And it's whispered that soon... if we all call the tune then the piper will lead us to reason. And a new day will dawn for those who stand long... And the forests will echo with laughter."
Don't follow the Pied Piper Into Oblivion. He's not someone you can count on.
"If there's a bustle in your hedge fund... don't get alarmed now... It's just a Spring Clean for the May Queen... There's still time to change the road your on..."
Don't rely on the whispering wind for your soul to mend! All that glitters is not gold. Choose love... over control.
"...And as we wind on down the road... our shadows taller than our soul… There walks a lady (Lady Justice) we all know… who shines white light and wants to show how everything still turns to GOLD. If you listen very hard the truth will come to you at last… when all are one and one is all… to be a rock and not to roll."
