C Continued

I was too negative with Steve Jobs.  Here is his obit from the Onion:

CUPERTINO, CA—Steve Jobs, the visionary co-founder of Apple Computers and the only American in the country who had any clue what the fuck he was doing, died Wednesday at the age of 56. “We haven’t just lost a great innovator, leader, and businessman, we’ve literally lost the only person in this country who actually had his shit together and knew what the hell was going on,” a statement from President Barack Obama read in part, adding that Jobs will be remembered both for the life-changing products he created and for the fact that he was able to sit down, think clearly, and execute his ideas—attributes he shared with no other U.S. citizen. “This is a dark time for our country, because the reality is none of the 300 million or so Americans who remain can actually get anything done or make things happen. Those days are over.” Obama added that if anyone could fill the void left by Jobs it would probably be himself, but said that at this point he honestly doesn’t have the slightest notion what he’s doing anymore.

Then in the NY Times today, an interesting read (plus this cartoon): Laughing at the Big C  from writers and performers who have all Gone Through It.

    A minority of Americans, now down to 37%, believe that Obama will be re-elected. The majority seem to apply the principle: “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.” Would Job vote to re-hire this presidential “genius” for a second term? Yes, if he were again the lesser of two crooks.
