And the truth comes out

My employers is mere weeks away from heaving its last breath, and now that the bigwigs have gone, the lower-ranked attorneys are bitching about the firm's dissolution via company-wide email. These messages are worth reading, let me tell you. Here are some choice excerpts:

"...the abysmal failure of leadership and a few greedy lawyers unwilling to cut back on high compensation..."

"...we are all now able to find new places with better leadership and management that makes better efforts to harness the talents of their lawyer with compensation that better resemble a meritocracy than the ponzi scheme that ultimately developed at Wolf Block..."

"...we had grossly incompetent senior leadership who practiced financial insanity and, together with outsiders who stood to benefit from large fees, led their partners like lemmings to dissolution..."

A new message, full of bile and helpless anger, comes in once every few hours, so today has been just the gift that keeps on giving. I'm tempted to reply, firm-wide, to say, "People, please...continue!"

New favorite lyric:

"Tom Cruise is so in love with Katie
At least all his people tell him so
And while he thinks that she's a very special lady
It's probably not the way he'd choose to go
But a lifetime of longing looks would cause too much distraction
Good thing that he's not gay anymore"

Artist: Jonathan Coulton (Jonathan Coulton)
Song: Tom Cruise Crazy
Album: Thing a Week
