    Many, many people take sacrifices of all kinds: financial, time with family, other interests, privacy, because working in government is something they consider an honor that exceeds all of these other rewards.

    Say what you will about him, but Mayor Bloomberg refuses to be paid the Mayoral salary on principle.

    Why should the financial guys, who make more than most other government appointees anyway, not demonstrate some commitment by leaving some of the trappings of private sector work behind?
