I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on the internet.
What does McCardle then do? Why, play doctor, of course. And on the Internet! It’s the double play of stupid!
But what seems more likely? That Steve Jobs is suffering from a “hormone imbalance” that has sent his weight plummeting and requires a leave of absence, or that his delay in treating his pancreatic cancer while he messed around with woo “alternative therapies” for nine months gave it time to metastize? Pancreatic cancer is nasty, nasty stuff. I don’t think we’re going to see another comeback this time.
Read that last line again. The Macalope has no funny retort, no snarky comeback to that. He is simply aghast at your ghoulish lack of sensitivity and boorish inclination to provide a medical opinion you yourself admit you’re unqualified to give.
Steve Jobs has never managed–or from what I understand, even much tried–to build a robust corporate culture that could be self-sustaining without his presence.
Great. Now we’ve established that not only are you unqualified to provide medical opinions, you’re also unqualified to provide management opinions.
What is it exactly you do?
