StarTribune Letter of the Day:
Even a physician [sic] knows right from wrong
From the Strib:
June 4, 2008
Pardon me, but I can't stop laughing about Dr. William McGuire's defense of his backdating stock options from UnitedHealth Group. He was simply following the advice from his legal and financial advisers (Business, June 3).
His advisers state that he has no formal training in finance, accounting or law. They state that his only professional training is as a medical doctor.
Well, excuse me. My only professional training is also as a medical doctor.
However, even I would know it's not a good idea to accumulate millions of dollars by robbing banks or by backdating stock options. Let the trial begin.
