It's a bit fraught, but this near screed puts the point about Gross about as well as it need be: he's an ammoral, better than average opportunist who simply found himself in an extraordinarily opportune place at the right time in history - for his sort.

He got where is by doing favors for nasty people who were both in and out of the former regime. He must have so many chits in his wallet I'm surprised he can sit down.

Doug's wish to believe that Gross is not a swine may be well-intentioned, but the sooner he's dispelled of that notion the better, imho.
