I've been watching these board meetings for years. (one of the few that does) Director Prosser seems a little different from the other directors on that board. He does seem to have some kind of actual conscience, this isn't the first time that he seemed to be genuinely moved. If this is his "act" he is one of the best I have ever seen. Remember, Prosser was also a career technocrat and is now living on a government pension, something pretty big, not as big as Warners (which is 10k a month). And all these career technocrats are pretty self absorbed, ego maniacs.
Does Prosser actually care?
