Yard Wasps
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:28 pm EDT, Apr 29, 2002

"Several wasp species can be found around the yard. Although wasps feed on insects such as house flies and garden pests, some can also be dangerous to people. Most wasps typically ignore people. For example, social insects that live in colonies will readily sting when they perceive their nest or territory is threatened while solitary insects only sting in self-defense when mishandled. "

If these damned things continue to reproduce at this rate we'll have to build bubble cities to escape them.

Ozzy Osbourne, CEO
Topic: Miscellaneous 3:23 pm EDT, Apr 29, 2002

Time and again I have argued against facile comparisons of various non-business-world figures to CEOs. I’m getting nowhere. Just last weekend I saw a reference to George W. Bush as having the management style of “a big-picture CEO.” Why bother pointing out that some CEOs are big-picture types and others are micromanagers? Why bother noting that the same variation occurs among any set of leaders, from politicians to baseball managers? So I give up. I’m joining the pack. I’ve decided that it’s possible, after all, to consider any public figure through the lens of corporate leadership. Today, then, we will consider the management style of Ozzy Osbourne.

w1ld: humorious at best.

Make a million, lose a million, who cares?
Topic: Miscellaneous 6:58 pm EDT, Apr 11, 2002

April 11, 2002 | The thing that amazes me isn't that I
lost a million dollars, but that I had it to begin with. My career
path looked more likely to lead to a night manager's job at
Border's than to financial success. I racked up a solid C
average as an English major, then temped at law firms,
proofread, taught English in Prague and reported for a small
newswire service.
