Middle seat nightmare. BTW, it's a 787. And the reason I know that is because of the recent spate of bad news about that plane, from fuel leaks to electrical fires. I'll take the 757, thank you.

I remember what Jimmy Huff had to go through to help win that business. But I never heard that anecdote about Malcolm. Brilliant!

Contrived conflict is the primary ingredient for "reality" TV, Steve. Making solid strategy is visually boring.

My fondest quote from Mr. Foster was when I told him I was getting married: "Marriage? Well that'll f*ck you up."
*head smack* Would love to know how many man-hours it took them to come up with that.

Not there yet, a mere 77. A lot younger than Ernest Borgnine. I like the fact that they still work together as the voices of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy on Spongebob Squarepants.

Informative and cautionary content for sure. By the way Steve, Chagrin Falls is the hometown of comedic actor Tim Conway.

Lorraine. Duh.
Passion is important, but in his case it was all consuming.
Based upon all the anecdotes Job's biographer supplied during his book tour, from the temper tantrums to the weeping, I've come to the conclusion that Jobs was simply a moody, genius level menopausal woman. No offense to actual women.
My eyes are still burning from reading this. Ivory tower thinking at its best.

A ham-handed attempt at social media-influenced humanization.

"To the best of my knowledge, Ronald was never ordained". Oh, snap!

I was thinking the same thing after reading at your first graph. New biz pitches are about as ugly as sausage extrusion (and law making).

A positive twist on your use of Heinz 57: lots of variety creates a rich life. Can't say you're not squeezing every drop out of the bottle.

"I believe religion, and not money, is the root cause of all evil." Damn straight.
Oh, just give me the TARDIS. End of the world wouldn't matter.

Sit in on every comedy act I could find. Hey, if the world is about to end, might as well drink and laugh. I'd expect a set from you, Steve.

What makes a blog popular seems as elusive as what makes a video go viral. But Book and Lunch are right. We all have reputations; the topic is deep as it is wide. So we regularly tune in to find out who screwed up this week and how to avoid making the same missteps ourselves.

Where will it end, Steve? With people like the Steinbrenner boys casually referencing socialism when public funds built their cash-making sport palaces, who knows? http://espn.go.com/espn/page2/index?id=6146704

Private elevator? Feh! I remember back in the day that our erstwhile CEO had his own corporate lunch table. I glanced at it once.

I knew the second Jim and you'll never be him. Of that you can be glad.

Feeling the same way out here on the prairie, Steve. Looking around the bend for better news. BTW, regarding the Q-Tips? Unlike pursuing new business, stop when you feel resistance.
