It's sad the amount of attention-whoring that goes on around this event. The public outrage over perceived slights. The bickering over control. The slobbering fealty of our politicians. The violent rape of our civil liberties and personal freedoms.

/but that's how post-9/11 America rolls

Mr. Ekshun: This reminds me of some stories I've heard about Microsoft. Dissenting opinion/new idea/not doing exactly what you're told? Demoted, reassigned, or fired. Come to think of it, that seems to be the way most large American companies are managed.


Having known many Microsoft insiders, I doubt that severely. At least in their heyday, dissent was not only encouraged but expected.

Many times, though, the loudest and most opinionated people are also the least productive or useful. I think it's a reaction to knowing you're not good at your job - some people realize they need to change, and they do. Others try to shift all blame to others for their own poor performance, and they get a million and one gripes to air at the company, their coworkers, etc. I see it in people I fire - no, I didn't fire you for speaking truth to power, I fired you for getting less than half of the work done of your peers, and doing it so badly that you actually accomplished negative work, because everyone else had to work harder to re-do the work you did.

When someone like that gets fired, the sense of victimhood certainly doesn't end - and they are the only ones who are allowed to tell their side of the story.

You don't want people to take on responsibility not explicitly spelled out in their job description? Okay, but don't be surprised when they fail to do something about some bozos who are trying to fly an airplane into a building.

Cloudchaser Sakonige the Red Wolf: Also, I find it doubtful that they would fire him just for alerting them about savety concerns


When your tourist trap monument costs millions upon millions to make and upkeep, more then any other national landmark in the country, it does not behoove you to have people running around pointing out serious engineering flaws in it's construction, that would cost millions and millions more to repair.
