Essay 421

Ex-Presidents’ Day Newsflash!

RadioShack President and CEO David Edmondson resigned on Monday, probably under pressure from the controversy surrounding questionable details on his resume (see Essay 412). Edmondson had recorded receiving two degrees from a college in California. The college showed Edmondson completed two semesters. Degrees, semesters... hey, sounds like a simple matter of semantics. Edmondson listed earning his degrees in theology and psychology. The college doesn’t even offer degrees in psychology. Let’s not bother discussing the goofiness of potentially lying about a theology degree. Edmondson clearly is an MBA — Master Bullshit Artist. Is it a coincidence that RadioShack just experienced a 62% drop in earnings?
