    not only that, but the college degree is irrelevant at this point in Scott's career. Loeb wanted control and the board handed it to him though it wasn't in the best interests of all shareholders.

     

    Of course, anybody owning YHOO after the last 5 years deserves the pain. Why be involved?

    Funny to have YHOO and HP mentioned in the same sentence. Both companies firing CEO's over non-operational issues that smack of political correctness. No idea what impact it may have on YHOO, but it has been near ruinous for HP.
