.Asymmetry.. The head of Boeing got bounced last week (early this week?) because of a "consensual" affair with a Boeing employee. He was separated. She divorced. He had been called out of retirement a year and a half ago to deal with the mess at that great, but scandal plagued company. (He is 68, had been the CEO, had retired cum laude, and had been asked to come back and help.) He was doing a good job. But his ability to lead depended on his moral heft, and this indiscretion compromised him. Out he goes.

And then there's Bill . . .
