Re: his work there is done

"always baffled me how serial screw-ups go from one highly-paid position to another, leaving devastation in their wake"

Incidentally, for a massive serial screw-up (though he stayed in the same job throughout) one of the most extreme historical examples must be Henry 8th. Just about everything he touched turned to shit. But he's the one who gets a big write-up in the history books, while nobody is really interested in the kings who presided over periods of stability and prosperity.

The human race just seems to enjoy a good car crash.
