“He’s some guy, he has a blog….”

“Right but have you read the things he’s saying?  About our firm and what we say and do? Who the hell is in charge of this?  Who can we call?”

“What do you mean ‘call’?  He’s like an independent, he says what he wants…”

“Jesus Christ.  He’s talking about payout grids and selling concessions, how do we have no control of this?  He’s talking about everything!  He has a goddamn book out!”

“What would you like me to do?”

“SHUT HIM THE FUCK UP!  What kind of stupid question is that?  Find out what he wants and give it to him.”

“That’s just it, he doesn’t need anything from us, he hates us…”

“I don’t care what it takes, get him in the goddamn loop…”

“You don’t understand – he doesn’t care at all, he’s out to destroy the loop…every time we reach out to him he says to go fuck ourselves.  We can’t control him and there’s nothing he wants from us…”
