Stonecipher Out At Boeing. While it may seem Harry Stonecipher, the Savior of Boeing, quit over an affair, is that all there is to it?

Um, subgenius, you do realize that the CEO forced out over the Pentagon recruiting scandal was Phil Condit, who left over a year ago -- and that Stonecipher was the replacement CEO, who had recently apparently largely settled the dispute with the DoD?

This sort of thing would have been unthinkable before Viagra.

What about the woman? She's a Boeing employee too, isn't she?
Shouldnt' the same ethical standards apply to her?
If he's out because of this, shoudn't she be out too?

Dill,

The point is that he's out for reasons they don't have to disclose, and thus aren't, for the sake of everyone's stock portfolio.

It's like politicos needing to spend more time with their family. Heh. Rather extended family.

Stonecipher? What, is he a Druid? Or a prog-rock fan?

Sex with the employees is a Bad Idea. Period.
