I shrugged at this Harvey WeinsteinJoe Roth “please fire me” tape, which made its way around earlier this week. This is how colorful swagger types whose success partly depends on their ability to convince people every day that they fear nothing and no one….this is how guys like that talk. The bluster and the clubby attitude and vague air of entitlement. Most of them swear like sailors, and it’s kinda funny when they do.

I don’t live in these realms on a daily basis but time and again I’ve been in the room when such conversations have taken place. Twas ever thus.
