Say WHAT?

In the WallStJ this a.m., this story.

A quote: Ms. Fisher's lawyer, Gloria Allred, said her client is a single mother, raising a young son, who had worked recently as the vice president of a commercial real estate company.

Really? Her 11 year old son worked as a VP at a real estate company? Impressive.

Have people completely forgotten how to write?

And, on the merits, what did Ms. Fisher THINK was going to happen? I have no sympathy for Hurd, if he acted badly he should be fired. But... if Ms. Fisher didn't want him to be fired, what DID she want? Furthermore, Hurd was NOT fired for harrassment, but rather for stealing money with doctored expenses (which he says he did not fill out, but acknowledges were inaccurate).

Lord, California, give it up.

Bad writing? It's all about the cost of periods. The writer might have put it this way: "Ms. Fisher's lawyer, Gloria Allred, said her client is a single mother, raising a young son. She had worked recently as the vice president of a commercial real estate company."

It's the same number of letters, sure -- but look there in the middle; I have inserted an expensive period, where the original had only a cheap comma.

(In this piece, I have used periods stolen from the caches of people who don't write much. :-)

Poor Mark Hurd. His severance package was ~$28 million in cash and stock. Now he's just another one among the countless unemployed.

Is a severance generally 1400 times the amount in dispute? I'm starting to get ideas...
