Capital Markets Special-ist...

One, of course, does not expect folks of a regulatory mindset to be either interesting or entertaining as public speakers; and the lead-off econo-prattler did not disappoint. Many in the audience bowed their heads and wished they were somewhere else - perhaps a funeral. 

The second presenter was introduced as their capital markets "guru". Assume they called him a guru because they weren't sure how to spell charlatan, mountebank, pettifogger or punchinello, but....

... he did give a "robust"* presentation!
[ We all agreed he was "special".]

* "robust" - adj., Eng. - from the Latin ... meaning "written by an idiot".
