The Skinners of the world

Every large business office has its Skinner - a queer combination of decency, honesty, brains and brutality, a worshiper at the shrine of Mammon in the temple of the great god Business, a reactionary Republican, treasurer of his church and eventually a total loss from diabetes, brought on by lack of exercise and worry over trifles.

(from Cappy Ricks, by Peter B. Kyne)
