    Midas in reverse

    Completely different subject but Shells restaurant in Tampa filed for Chapter 11 today. So let's just take a look at the track record of one Leslie Christon. Left Red Lobster to join Brinker as President of On the Border in 1998 (or so). On the Border's growth grinds to a complete halt for about three years. Crazy menu development, no direction, no leadership but lots of cocktail parties and wine. Then she takes over at Sutton Place Gourmet. Sutton Place Gourmet goes out of business. Then she takes over as CEO of shells. Loses $10M and then steps down. And you thought Katrina was destructive.
