Over At Bloggin In Black, the latest post is about writers and depression:

According to the NYT:

Monica continues:

According to Shelia Goss, many authors suffer from depression, but feel too embarassed or ashamed to talk about it, and thus they have no way of knowing that they aren’t alone.

I know at least one author who constantly suffers from self-doubt and depression, and she’s a great writer. I wonder how prevalent this really is.

British, black, and easy on the eye, what more could one ask for, woo, hoo!!

Hamilton led all the way in an incident filled race, which saw off many of the other race drivers, including Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, and Renault’s Giancarlo Fisichella, who were black flagged after they raced off, despite the red light still being on at the pit exit.

The worst incident of the race, occurred when Robert Kubica suffered a horrific head on collision, with the circuit wall. He’s reported to have a broken leg as a result of the crash.

This leaves Hamilton sitting at the top of the championship, leading his team mate, and last year’s Champion, Fernando Alonso, by eight clear points.

Is he good enough to go all the way? If he drives the way he has done during the first six GP races of his career, anything’s possible!

1.Paying an ex-boyfriend to ‘leak’ a dirty video of you on the internet, $100
2.Money gained from doing absolutely nothing, $5million
3.Bribing a sheriff to reduce your jail time, $1000
4.Watching Paris Hilton sob her heart out as she’s taken back to jail, PRICELESS!

(Hehe, thanks for the inspiration Amie.)

What do these seven people have in common?

Nick Leeson – Barings Bank Chief Trader
David Duncan – Arthur Andersen, chief auditor for Enron
Steve Jobs – Apple CEO
Scott Sullivan – Worldcom CFO
Andrew Fastow – Enron CFO
Dennis Koslowski – Tyco International CEO
Scarlett Chambers AKA Deborah Taylor – Venus Press owner


All of the above companies (with the obvious exception) are/were huge concerns, and it only took a handful of people to bring them to their knees in one way or another. In the case of Nick Leeson, he single-handedly managed to bring down the oldest investment bank in the UK to the tune of £830m.

My point? A company is only as strong as its weakest link.

Ethics and professionalism count for a lot, and we all know that the bigger you are, the harder you fall.

Just sayin’.
