Sabotage Schadenfreude

 Lora Kolodny / CNBC:
Elon Musk emails employees about ‘extensive and damaging sabotage’ by employee  — Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent an e-mail to all employees on Sunday night alleging there was a saboteur within the company's ranks.  — Musk alleged this employee tweaked code on internal products and sent company data out without authorization.
Fuck you, rich boy. That Musk Oil shit fucking reeks, & you're a paranoid asshole. Which is why people don't like you & try to sabotage you.

Maybe Trump'll threaten to revoke your naturalization papers & ship your ass back to South Africa (or Canada; Elon's the textbook definiton of rootless cosmopolitan, & he's not even Jewish) unless you pay him a couple billion. That'd be funny.

Aw, Fuck No! Not Nick Knox!

I hate being obligated to note when someone I know dies (even the cases where I was born before & have outlived the dead) & it's happened again.

Mr. Knox occasionally hung w/ the party clique w/ which I used to hang, possibly because Click Mort (check the blog-roll) former Cramps guitarist, used to hang w/ us too. Perfectly nice person, never gave me any shit. (Unlike Click, but that's another story.)
