    There's a special corner of hell reserved for the boss who made my wife cry today.

    I would never lift a finger to help him more quickly get there, understand. I want to make that clear.

    Neither would I lift a finger to slow his journey, though.

    Somtimes peoples' cars get big door dings in parking lots. It's mysterious, really.

    Sorry to hear it Henry, and hope it was nothing too serious.

    For the right price, I know some people who can help you (that's a joke). But seriously, there could be some things we could do that would make his live not very happy.

    I had an incident at my old paper when the Managing Editor chewed out my wife and mader her cry. It was a shitty feeling on my part. Do I go in there and confront him, risking my job? I knew I'd lose my temper so I didn't do it. My wife quit a few days later. I felt like quitting but what would we do then?

    Later on this guy was fired, so there was some vindication. But it was an awkward, frustrating feeling.

    Umm, my wife has been working carefully with one of her higher ups to develop a ... new working arrangement that would allow her to continue to do her writing and columnizing thing in a more flexible fashion. A plan was agreed to, but that plan got scrapped without much serious consideration by the next guy up the organizational ladder.

    Upsetting for her, yes, but it underscores why I've been wanting her to get out from under that situation for a while now. It's a newsroom that's in the midst of a power struggle and she just inadvertantly got caught up in that.

    Homer: I don't think his life is too happy now. That's why I think he takes some twisted pleasure from this kind of thing.

    Sorry to hear that, dude. Give her a big hug from me. She's waaay too nice for some douchebag to do that to her.

    Remember, only you can prevent forest fires.

    He wants to hurt him, not bore him to death.
