Poindexter's Pink Slip


Adm. John Poindexter has been canned due to his proposed futures market in killing terrorists (as if his Total Information/Terrorism Information Awareness plan wasn't reason enough to be sacked).

Worry not for the Iran-Contra felon, however. He's shown a wonderful ability to fail upward. Hence, even in this job market, this latest firing should properly be viewed as the next step forward in a fabulously successful career.
