I, ah . . . heh heh, yeah . . . I don’t know what to say about this. Reads like yellow rag, but as many former colleagues like to say: “I don’t believe in coincidences.”
Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but if a quarter of it is true, we’re in a world of hurt. What follows? Another house-cleaning and replacement with “safe” choices (read: placeholders who will make no decisions and do nothing). That leaves us with just over two years of stagnation, which the bad guys will definitely take advantage of.
