    Ellen J. Kullman, Chief Beneficiary of Merit-Free DuPont Diversity Model

    Hoisted To the Top By Mandated Gender Preference!

    THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buenos Dias,

    Readers, it's no secret we have found Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, blatantly wanting as a leader of what used to be the most powerful, biggest chemical enterprise on the globe. With mounting hubris, she has shrunk sales and earnings, bid against herself and over-paid $7 billion for a second-place enzyme and food ingredient outfit, Danisco, put a potentially dangerous car A/C refrigerant on the market (the Kullman Koolant, HFO-1234yf), and presided over the biggest environmental disaster and most costly new product failure in 21st century corporate America, the multi-$billion DuPont Imprelis consumer fraud. For all that she has been richly and obscenely rewarded beyond dreams by DuPont's Derelict Directors.

    How did Ms. Kullman reach the pinnacle of power? Here's the way we see it:

    * The Empress of Imprelis was hand-picked by her predecessor and mentor, Chad Holliday, who, clever politician who he is, did not want any successor to upstage his meager achievements over a ten-year Reign of Error, 1998-2008. She's even more inept and business-senseless than the hollow Holliday, hard to believe.

    * Foremost, Ms. Kullman is the golden beneficiary of Management's much touted Diversity Model, with its mandates of gender and colour preferences. Individual merit and character don't count; affirmative action quotas and PR window-dressing do.

    Surely, with all the corporate talent out there in the U. S. and abroad, there would have been a far superior choice, woman or man for the top spot at DuPont.

    Merely the SUNDAY SIZE-UP penned by one individual investor, AVD shareholder, and long-time student of the dysfunctional

    DuPont in decline...funfun..
