You seem to suffer from that curious American disease of equating money with
career fulfilment and happiness.  There is no sour grapes at all, and
throughout my various career paths I have chosen what made me happy over
what made me rich.  This is not to say that I want to work for free, but I
am quite happy making what I do in a year.  I have no desire to do a job I
loathe to make more money.  I couldn't care less who gives orders.  There is
far more nobility in serving well than in managing poorly.

I have never been interested in corporate culture... and the revelations of
the wrongdoings of American business over the past few years point to
exactly why I am not.  It is far better to be ethical and content than to
try to devour the world with one's greed.
