    Thanks for the clarification. One question: what exactly is the "fun fund" you speak of, und warum 40 auf Deutsch? Danke sehr.

    • Juan Ruiz,

      On an amusing note, when we devised our moniker some years ago, there were only about 45 DuPont Vice Presidents. That's from where the number "45" came.

      Of course, now Ms. Cull-Men drives a herd of circa 100 DuPont Presidents and DuPont Vice Presidents and General Managers and Equivalents to Vice President. As fast as the DuPont Company has shrunk over a decade-plus, its grossly overpaid senior executive ranks have swelled.

      [Indeed and in fact, the huge, disproportionate overhead has helped impede the competitiveness of DuPont Sub-Performance Coatings, now "reportedly" on the block.]
