    Why is it that virtually every time a corporation hires someone to it’s management positions they announce it to the world as if it were earth shattering news that the public has waited on the edge of their seats for.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy as a pig in poop that Sharon Casey has secured employment at OTPC and wish her luck in her chosen profession. What bugs me is the same corporation could hire 100 regular working stiffs and not one of them would merit an announcement in the newspaper unless he was on parole for murdering an entire village of dwarfs with biting sarcasm.

    I understand that a story about Joe Blow turning nuts onto bolts for thirty years is not “Anna Karenina” but neither is “Ralph Bigwind, President of our bank thumbed through the pages of ledgers for thirty years with only four paper cuts”.

    How about some balance. How about showing that you also value the service of ordinary working people.

    It’s the same why when they die….the Banker or Attorney gets a half page spread detailing every good deed his relatives can come up with, plus an oversized 20 year old photo and sometimes even random remembrances from his past management acquaintances.

    When Joe Average dies his family has to fork over some money to the newspaper for a one column wide obituary (which in this paper, readers must answer questions to read, as to a troll guarding a bridge in a fairytale) telling his friends that he fell off the twig last Friday and we will plant him next Wednesday.

      LOL! Some days I really enjoy your creative writing. I’ve often wondered these things as well.
