  •  nice guys don't retroactively retire. When I heard (3+ / 0-)

    that one, I had a flashback to when Spiro Agnew pled "no lo contendre" to corruption charges. I had never heard of that one, either. Avoided a trial and most penalties of conviction.

    Retroactive retirement is just the sort  of thing someone who routinely pillaged companies and left them in the wind to die would come up with to spare himself any inconveniences of being tarred by rapacious destruction.

    His coldness and cluelessness I think are keys to his personality. Being deficient in truly human empathy may be a necessary trait when you're sucking billions out of functioning companies, raiding the pension funds, and stealing people's livelihoods.
