Welcome back, Manuel. Good to hear from you again--and hope your absence was due to pressure of much professional practice.

My son is taking a college course about professional consulting. I was amused to learn that huge sums are often paid by corporations to management consultants, over and over again . Why? Because those in charge want a scapegoat, if criticized for mismanagement. The want someone else to blame, and pay well for the service.

Similarly, engagement of the celebrity architect allows the client to avert criticism, saying "We go the best that money can buy."
