Galt walks - Is competetion bad ?

Lets say your a highschool coach hired to instill a sense of achievement and competion in your team.  Your team is greatly succesful, to the point where they crush a competing team, a complete shutout.  Does your employer thank you for a job well done?  No they demand you apologize for doing your job.  What would be your response?

Well Micah Grimes - Coach of the Covenant school who was put in this position after his team won a 100-0 victory over a local rival, refused and was in turn fired.

If you are very lucky, you have a person in your life that is truly larger then life. Who is ready at the drop of a hat to kick ass and take names, and completely commit to tilting at any passing windmill which has raised his ire.

Recruiters... Wow players need not apply.

...He replied that employers specifically instruct him not to send them World of Warcraft players. He said there is a belief that WoW players cannot give 100% because their focus is elsewhere, their sleeping patterns are often not great, etc. I mentioned that some people have written about MMOG leadership experience as a career positive or a way to learn project management skills, and he shook his head. He has been specifically asked to avoid WoW players.

England’s Net Nanny

England seems to be further and further along the curve on the path to totalitarianism.  From this side of the pond, it serves as a wonderful Panopticon to see where the erosion of privacy and civil rights in this country are headed.
