A Pause for Prince

This guy, Clovis Prince, just got sentenced to 30 years in prison for bank fraud.
~
The news is making a lot of waves in the wireless telecom world because Clovis was well known in the industry for inserting his company in front of major tier one contractors and carriers in a slimey scheme to have those major players hire all contractors through his company, thus giving them a checkbox that showed the number of resources from a "minority company."
~
Now he says his harsh sentencing was racially motivated.  He should know.  That guy has a whole deck of race cards and has used all 52.
~
I got to know him because my boss at General Dynamics was particularly smittened by Clovis and had attended industry functions sponsored by him.   My boss was big on preaching ethics, but otherwise, not too honest, which is another story.
~
Prince and I sat on a panel discussion during a conference in Las Vegas once.  I was sitting next to him, waiting for him to conclude his opening remarks and thinking about what I was going to say to the sparse auditorium audience, when Clovis mentioned that he had been in the wireless industry for 30 years.   That threw my thought process completely off, because the freaking industry was only 15 years old at the time.  As I recall, my opening remarks did not seem to evoke much interest from the audience.
~
I'm pretty sure that Prince recognized my disdain, and always looked at me sideways and called me "Nestor"   after that, while he continued to kiss my boss's ass.
~
I'm not really surprised at his demise.  I'm sure my old ethical Boss will deny ever meeting him.
