Whoosh, Bye! Please!

Looking at the bad news and opposing forces moving in — the economy might be tanking, stock market diving, Time Magazine’s major piece on Bush screw-ups leading to 9/11, Gore’s great, great piece in today’s NY Times, the polls starting to show that the Democrats could do very well in the upcoming election — it strikes me that this is the point in corporate life where the top executives sell all their stock to the unsuspecting public and bail just before things fall apart, flying away to the Cayman Islands in their private jets. Whoosh, bye!

Maybe Bush, Cheney and the rest of that crowd will stick to their previous instincts and do what they did at Harken and Halibutron and Enron and the rest of the companies these guys and their cronies looted, and skip town one of these nights. Wish they would.
