Last week the New York Times ran a front-page story entitled, Hillary Clinton Taps Speechmaking Gold Mine. The article suggested that it's ethically questionable at best for former politicians to receive exorbitant fees for speaking engagements. I take issue with this.

If only a small fraction of the people afflicted with bulimia or alcoholism are moved by Quinn's revelation and seek treatment, her decision to make her private struggles public will have greatly served the public interest.

Christmas may be the most wonderful time of year for many, but for managers, it's summer that often brings the greatest joy. After all, this is when millions of college students and recent graduates offer their services for little or no pay.

Bruce Weinstein

Let's face it: We don't accomplish most of our resolutions because most of the goals we set for ourselves are too ambitious. When we fail to achieve our objectives, we end up feeling bad about ourselves, and we return with a vengeance to the very behaviors we have vowed to stop.
