19. Brilliant Musician
Sly brought so much joy to this world via his music.

Managers should have conducted themselves more honorably.

Funny how a musician is expected by some (not you Yurovsky, but a few on this thread) to be a vigilant lawyer-like manager of his own financial affairs above and beyond his creative energies. Imagine if we demanded that the bean-counters and hype-mongers in management compose a brilliant song before they could keep any of their earnings. F'n management vultures would starve to death first.

From Sly's situation to the present trillions to Wall St., I think that America is the embodiment of a kleptocratic dictatorship of the pencil-pushers.
