Scholars And Frauds

A Muslim friend of mine saw S.P. for the first time the other day and reported back that I read like "a real scholar".

I beamed with the pride of a massaged ego, of course. But this springs to mind:

'Oh mighty thing!' said Vera to Frank, 'Why didn't you just tell them you were a moderate man and leave it at that instead of goosing yourself all over the room?' 'Patience, Vera,' said Frank.
(Bob Dylan, 'Three Kings' 1968)

I'm a desperate fraud who may well believe in nothing but saving his own arse any way he can.

...But to pull it off with style is the key!

Agreed.And to pull it off at a profit is even better.Neither of which have I managed so far.
