Only in Waxmanworld and Finkeworld (and among their orbiting buzz-feeders) does anyone care which NBC/Universal suits have been/might be/will be fired, or who got the news first. All right, people care somewhat but not that much.

When things aren’t going well the people at the very top of the pile start thinking about who to whack. I’m sorry for those whose heads are now in jeopardy — it’s obviously traumatic — but suits have to live with the threat of being suddenly discharged just as John Dillinger had to live with the possibility of getting cut down by G-Men. “We have spoken these words, Starbuck, a billion years before these waters rolled.”
