    Something is brewing in Winston-Salem

    "Remember what Icahn said about corporate leaders. The ones that have been around for a long time are survivors, and the reason they survive is becasue they ensure no one below them is smarter, more innovate, more sophisitcated than they are....hence they last forever and the brain drain extends exponentially thru the organization....BB&T in a nutshell."

    You sir are what is commonly referred to as an idiot.

    You actually believe that any leader that has been around for a long time (subjective), is there because they are afraid to surround themselves with intelligent people. This violates one of the key principles of Leadership 101. Good leaders surround themselves with the best . . . and in many cases they surround themselves with people who are smarter than themselves.

    I don't know about the wisdom of Icahn, but Forrest Gump says, "Stupid is as stupid does." Maybe you can relate to that.
