I've respected Bezos for risk-taking

But didn't really like him or think him smart - brave maybe - there've been some insane risks taken to build that outfit unless there's a lot we don't know.

This move seems to demonstrate both risk tolerance AND brains.

Good of him to refuse to negotiate with the terrorists. Good that it's being reported in places people with IQ's greater than room temperature in centigrade will see it too.

A shame many men (and I'm one) do tend to think with the smaller of their two heads, getting the spinal column priority upside down, but it is what it is, and certainly not unique to this particular guy or a political view.

It's like Oracle vs Satan - who to root for? Amazon has certainly changed my own life for the better, while destroying many others - and creating insane dependency on themselves from retail to AWS....I figured the main function of the Enquirer was to keep low competence people occupied and out of our hair, if I thought about it at all. And you know Bezos didn't buy the Washington Post because he thought print media was going to be a profitable come-back.

Snakes vs alligators indeed.
