Re: Musk = Brezhnev?
"The difference is that Brezhnev seemed to be able to sustain personal relationships longer."
Until he got old and probably mentally ill Brezhnev wasn't too bad.
The story about him that I like is that a new economics minister was appointed and Brezhnev interviewed him.
"What do you know about hunting?"
"And I know nothing about economics. So, tell you what, I'll do the hunting and you do the economics."
A lot of politicians could, I think, learn from that (especially Michael Gove, if he's capable of learning anything from anybody other than where to stick the knife in.)
