Narcissism Posing as Principle
Really, that is all. Just wanted to remember that turn of phrase I just read in Harry Stein's book. It actually came from former Navy Psychologist Steve Rittenberg, speaking of Ivy League draft dodgers pulling Klingers in his office when he pointed out that if they didn't go, some poor kids would go in their place. You know, the poor they cared so much about.
Apparently this didn't bother them at all.
