"What about our shareholders? Who's helping THEM? Huuunh?" - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

11:51 am - "What about our shareholders? Who's helping THEM? Huuunh?"
Remember Pixar's "The Incredibles"? Remember Insuricare, the insurance company Bob works for after he's forced to stop being Mr. Incredible? Remember the scene where his boss, Mr. Huph, calls him in and takes him to task for actually (gasp!) *helping* its customers?
I used to think the sheer evilness of that company was greatly exaggerated for comic effect. But after reading many things about the insurance industry, such as Froma Harrop's latest column, I guess not!
I wanna screen "The Incredibles" for a group of people. And when it gets to the scene where Bob snaps, grabs Mr. Huph by the neck, and tosses him through four office walls in a row and into a filing cabinet, I wanna hear people stand up and cheer!
