New Blog on the Block
My husband got tired of bugging me to write “the WalMart post.” Finally, when I said: “you know, you really ought to start a business blog and write it yourself. . .”
And now I love the WalMart post, and wish I had written it! I’ve always wondered about the left-wing vendetta against WalMart, and Jack explores why the Left hates the mega-store so much.
Although my favorite post of his from this week is one on Tears and Leadership. I know as a woman I am supposed to think that tears are okay — that Pat Whats-her-name got a bum deal for crying in public — but I think Jack makes a very strong case for No Tears among leaders.
He cites Mary Landrieu’s teary tour of New Orleans as a case in point. And, honestly, can you imagine Margaret Thatcher crying in a situation like that? When we finally do have a female president, it will be a woman who successfully navigates these treacherous shoals of handling personal emotions publically.
