LOL - I assume your keyboard entry digits were firmly planted "in cheek" eh?
I love this - Scott has nailed another astute statement about the amazing disconnect in mentality between:
a) Engineers who honestly try to exceed all expectations for any product they deliver (the direct result of Corporations and Entrepreneurs allowed to Profit by application of effort and ingenuity in a Capitalist infrastructure)
b) Marketing weenies who over-exaggerate, over-promise, and overcome all factual restraints when fabricating inventive campaigns to appeal to the masses
- and -
c) Incompetent leadership that demands and expects such 'creativity' from marketing and even accounting...and wants NO PART of any e-paper trail to exist which might question whether or not they knew - or should have - or could have known about any facts to the contrary.
It's not just Capitalist Corporations, of course...Witness the ongoing employment of Eric Holder in the face of Fast & Furious, or the golden parachutes of the ex-leadership at Solyndra, or the tenure awarded the so-called 'climatologists' who made up the whole Global Warming scam.
