Brian you do us proud, and you deserve every penny of it, what's more. When the mockers see that they won't be so fast to paint nude pictures of you again.

C'mon. If they didn't give a hefty stipend, they'd only get idiots to serve.

At least you know how much they put in their pockets and where it comes from. Our next president in sunny S.A. is going to be a wealthy man - ask the Chinese - and it will have nothing to do with his salary.
