I admire the global efforts of these two professionals, but at the same time I am somewhat distressed at the necessity of the project. Recently I was looking at the search terms that brought web users to my website, and I saw this phrase used in a search: “does a trustee have a duty to be honest”. I was stunned that someone even had to ask. But, perhaps I should not have been. How sad.
