The Fish Stinks From The Head

leave a comment »

I am sure someone out there will accuse me of being an aphorist, but it’s hard not to be when there are such good aphorisms. Have you ever heard Steve Jobs say, ” Jeez, ya know a Mac is way over priced, even if if it is the best”, or Bill Gates say, “Windows is a stinking operating system that should have been scrapped long ago” or better yet, Joe Torre exclaiming how bad the Yankees suck while accepting the World Series Trophy?

I doubt it. I doubt you ever would, even with no one else around. We have a saying where I come from: Il pesce puzza dalla testa. The fish stinks from the head. Obama has a penchant for speaking ill of his homeland when abroad. Colleen Bottalico’s mom, Moira Quinn, would have called him a stranger lover. Obviously he thinks this effacement is warranted, and agrees with with it. He must think he is currying favor with foreign nationals. To what end? Does he believe he will run for president of the world? Or does he truly hate this country? May be both? Never trust someone that tries to elevate his/herself at the expense of others. This guy has a combination of a chip on his shoulder, marxist/progressivist beliefs, and the political abilities to get to the office of the presidency, as a shadow candidate no less. I would ask how long before most of realize how disingenuous he is, or to put it another way, when will the stench get to everyone?

It’s hard to tell. With the new 4th branch of government, the press, AKA Propaganda and Public Relations, Obama may take his magic act to a whole new level. When he’s done, he may make FDR look like Jimmy Carter. I am betting that at some point, the press will get tired of playing step and fetch it and someone will have to look behind the curtain, but who? Bush never had this acquiescent and docile of a press. Can you imagine? I am not taking sides here, only observing. Such obeisance should be disconcerting to journalists. It also doesn’t do well for ratings. Have they no pride?

Good Bye Steve

The letter from Steve to his employees:


I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.


I wish Steve Jobs the best and hope for a full recovery, but I can’t help feeling the old boy took on a fight he can’t win. He just looks like hell and hasn’t looked well in a long time and I have to wonder if he’s known all along and was waiting for the right time to bow out.  Steve is Apple Inc, and I can’t imagine Apple without him. All I can say is get well Steve, and we’ll see you when you come back. 
Thank you for reading this blog.
