Interesting to see how Aw99 and other True Believers try to spin the fact that Michael Quinlan has just resigned, using the infamous excuse "I need to spend more time with my family." Since he had a five year contract, that's a bit improbable.
Rumor has it he is not leaving the company. Could he possibly continue to serve in some capacity in another area. What would be so wrong about a man returning home. Has he not earned it? I know there has got to be some deep dark plot to a man looking for some family time. I quess you would rather him work to the ripe old age of 100. I think when everthing plays out CXW and Mr. Quinlan will be the better for the move. I would like to thank him for the Job he has done. How bout U Breezy?
No doubt CCA will be better off, and I hear he is definitely gone. He proved conclusively that CCA couldn't be run the way the federal BOP was, among other things with centralized purchasing and single-providers for everything. I've been around CCA long enough that I recall that was tried in the very early years. It didn't work then, either. While I recognize you try to put a positive spin on everything, at times it does get absurd. Here's a man with a five year contract, signed, I assume, in good faith by all parties at the time, who suddenly realizes at this critical point in CCA's existence he wants to spend more time with his family. Don't I recall that a few execs at Enron gave the same reason a while back? In answer to your question, yes, there probably is some 'deep dark plot to a man looking for some family time' under these circumstances.
