More details on the the ritual sacrifice of Nina Jacobson are coming out. According to the LA Times, Dick Cook really didn’t want to break the bad news over the phone, but Jacobson forced him to do so (proving true the old adage about guys named Dick). Nikki Finke gives a historical perspective, as well as pointing out that for female moguls in Hollywood, the honeymoon is over.
I’m struck by how civilized and polite this all is. Back in my Montana hometown, Nina’d be grabbing her thirty-ought-six, jumping into her 4×4, and speeding into town to kick some butt.
(Fishbowl LA does not advocate the use of violence in settling workplace disputes. Usually.)
