Larry is out of town on his racing yacht, currently in the lead in the Americas Cup. I am glad I don't own Oracle because who the heck is minding the store whislt he is at sea?
A "store" with 10,000 employees doesn't need to be "minded" by the CEO. Any company worth its salt doesn't need the CEO to be there to run the day-to-day. In Oracle's case, I think they're better off if Larry ISN'T around.
