Following up with an interesting news story on Murdoch:

And a slightly earlier one:

Could be better--Murdoch wouldn't necessarily have to go to jail (although that would be nice for some others, like a big chunk of the Wall Street crowd), but it would be poetic justice to see the business go under. . .or be forced into a sale, hopefully to someone with a proper spirit to run it well.

Sadly, we seem to have let extremely aggressive bullies take things over.

There is a difference between ambition and aggressiveness--the two sometimes are similar, but they are not the same. That difference is something our culture seems to have forgotten.
