So Elon Musk is obtaining Twitter. You may possibly have listened to about it it created most of the information demonstrates.
The narrative is spinning so swiftly that Musk is both Thomas Jefferson of the 21st century or a modern-day megalomaniac with a huge checkbook to again him up.
I desire we could all perspective a tremendous-thriving businessman obtaining a tech company as something far more than good business. My hopes are superior for Musk’s foray into social media. Nonetheless, Musk currently being hailed the savior of my First Modification rights feels like a tremendous extend that would cause Simone Biles to pull a muscle mass.
Heck, I just want ol’ Elon to give Twitter an edit button to help save me from my fats thumbs.
Limited fuse, limited-timer
Did any individual genuinely be expecting something distinctive from Hamilton County Sheriff Jim Hammond?
I will wait.
Hammond, who has arrive under much more criticism than Dr. Fauci or “Caddyshack II,” held a news meeting Thursday about grievances about violence at Silverdale Detention Centre.
“As sheriff of this county, my position is to secure the lives of my officers 1st, the citizens of this local community 2nd and the inmates 3rd,” Hammond mentioned Thursday.
Unless of course your cousin Eddie or your Uncle Joey is locked up, it is really difficult to just take situation with Hammond’s priorities — primarily as the county’s greatest badge. Hey, at least the prisoners — you know, the folks that lost their liberty by breaking the regulation — are in the top rated 3.
Now if Hammond had explained, “They’re No. 3 — with a bullet,” very well that may be rough.
Additionally, was any one amazed that Hammond, who is contacting it a profession just after a professional life time in legislation enforcement, was defiant? Dude is the walking, conversing case in point of a shorter-timer, and all those problems and criticisms will fall to Austin Garrett arrive the tumble.
And here is betting everybody — Hammond incorporated — is fairly pleased with that.
Business office fixture
Okay, we all know those people individuals who have been at a corporation seemingly eternally, ideal?
Heck, my father labored for the identical electrical contractor in Atlanta for a smidge below 50 decades.
Effectively, Pop experienced practically nothing on Walter Orthmann. You see Walter, who turned 100 earlier this thirty day period, has been verified by Guinness for owning the globe file for longest career at just one corporation.
In January, Walter celebrated his anniversary at ReneauxView, a textile business in Brazil.
The 17th of that month marked Walter’s 84th year with the company, which was Industrias Renaux when he joined in 1938.
Buckets, I guess his 401K is extra fat.
Loved ones-owned organizations that stretch again as significantly as Jackson Home furniture in Cleveland are invaluable items in the material of a group.
Ron Jackson, the longtime CEO in his family’s household furniture enterprise, died before past week. He was 77.
Right after studying at McCallie and Emory University — and time in the army with the Air National Guard — Ron took the reins as president in 1975 of the enterprise his father, Ray, founded in 1933 with $30 to his name.
The reaches of a business with roots that long and previous in a town like Cleveland is tough to pinpoint. Consider of how a lot of people produced their livelihoods there, how lots of mom and dad supported kids — or vice versa — for the reason that of the positions at Jackson.
And that’s not even to point out the thousands and thousands and tens of millions who have sat on Jackson solutions back from the times of listening to the household radio to modern day days looking at a flat-display screen.
Relaxation simple Mr. Jackson, and thank you, sir.
