Today we heard that the New York Times' ethics guy Phil Corbett had to send out a memo reminding employees that they have strict rules about paid speaking engagements. These fools just can't remember the rules! So one commenter wrote a memo that ought to help.

From clownclone:


If you will, please remember that if you're speaking to fill your till it's important that you inform me or Bill. This policy has existed before the other Bill and will continue under Jill. I don't want to be a pill, but we don't want to be up to our gills in questions about our impartiality. The threat is not nil. You know the drill.



I can dig it!
