*sigh*

Well, today's news provides perfect gripe fodder. How much money do you have to get paid before it becomes financially viable to behave properly? The Boeing Company just can't seem to do anything right.

Stonecipher has spent the last year or so touting ethics and a "culture of openness". The last two weeks had tens of thousands of well-behaved Boeing employees taking enforced Ethics Recommitment Training, because a few people (Boeing executives) had broken the law and been unethical in general. Said executives were dismissed with lucrative retirement packages, and the little people have to waste their lives listening to ethics professors from various business schools drone on and on... Anyway, Stonecipher really pushed ethics in speeches and e-mails of the past two weeks, and now it comes out that he has been involved in an extra-marital affair (which is dishonest behavior, not to mention a willful violation of a binding legal contract) AND performed other (unspecified) acts that indicated "poor judgment". Not only was this bad behavior, but Stonecipher is 68 years old--Ew! What, was he using Viagra or something? He's OLD enough both to know better, and to let his libido go into retirement, in the interest of better pursuits (hello, Cephalus?).

Happy Monday, everyone!

Ahhh Cephalus, what a sexy man.
You have to wonder about his name though.
