Cardinals and Crows

Cardinals and Crows

Brief  
 
A Cardinal goes out to the Newton Fire Department for its efforts at professionally responding to two recent fires. Early Monday morning, fire fighters responded to a house fire that gutted the home. On Wednesday, the department responded to an attic fire at USA Healthcare. (The staff at USA also deserves a Cardinal.) We are fortunate to have such a high-quality fire department in our city.

A Crow to the corporate culture that rewards failure. Sure, the Maytag executives who stand to gain millions of dollars upon successful completion of Whirlpool’s acquisition of the Newton-based company are only following the current business model, but that doesn’t make it set any better. The whole thing leaves one wondering how such a system can be.
