  1. That made me laugh because it is true. Give me the results you want to hear. I will manipulate the data, frame the questions and phrase the report accordingly.

    We had a very successful year. We are very pleased with the results. We are pleased to report that we started a program of transparency, honesty and openness. We followed up this program with a program that will allow us to publish the results. This will allow the public to judge how well we have done. We are pleased to report that the reporting program is on time and our first report will be available soon; very, very soon.
