What do Guy Fawkes, Richard Nixon and Diego Maradonna have in common?

Guy Fawkes, Nixon and Maradona all felt that the end justified the means. 
They all behaved as if they were God. And two out of three failed. We celebrate the spectacular failure of Guy Fawkes’ Gunpowder Plot each Bonfire night, on November 5th, when Guy Fawkes was caught (and as our pets hide behind the sofa).  
Did you know that Immediately before his execution on 31 January 1606, Fawkes jumped from the scaffold where he was to be hanged and broke his neck, thus avoiding the agony of the mutilation that followed? 

On the other hand the massively talented Diego Maradona scored an unbelievable goal (with his hand!) in the 1986 World Cup quarter final against the (highly rated) England team.
People sometimes succeed and sometimes fail, but it’s important that they do so honourably.

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
