During that time I've had publishers who
* were paid by the biggest developer in the area and was accused of stealing from the newspaper owner.
* would reply to uncomfortable requests by saying "that's like taking it up the ass with no Vaseline."
* used a bootleg page-design software.
* refused to allow any negative comments about the cherished cultural institution he ran and forbade the use of model names of any vehicle in a crash due to upsetting his primary advertisers: car dealers.
* forced numerous layoffs because he failed to inform his minority partner of how he was using revenues.
* refused to allow the words "trailer" or even "mobile home" in the newspaper, allowing only "manufactured housing" in deference to an important advertiser.
* slept with a woman who worked for him.
* required stories that promoted Chamber of Commerce endeavors and allowed staff-written ads about a dealer's monthly car-sales numbers to run as news.
* worked with a business editor who helped arrange stories about advertisers and ran them as news.
* cheated a union out a retirement plan and was fired after he was accused of swiping about half a million dollars.
So when I hear stories about how Orange Julius is having trouble finding people willing to work for him, I can only think, "Where do I apply?"
I sold out a long time ago for a lot less money.
Besides, I suspect I can do a lot more damage from the inside.
