Yes, I robbed the goodly folks who were a-riding through the wood in a carriage, but my merry band of fellows are going to take those funds to purchase arrows from the fletcher, and decorative codpieces from the codsmith, etc. etc. and so as job-creators we should, in fact, be praised and subjects of fawning portraits, in prose and in oils.
