READER’S EDITORIAL: THE LEGACY OF STEVE JOBS (1955-2011)

October 6, 2011 (San Diego’s East County)—Here is another inspiration and gift from Steve Jobs that bears witnessing. He was fired from the company and product he created. Who fired him? A board of directors representing investors interested only in money--not interested in creative genius or a CEO who didn’t fit their vapid images, no doubt. 
 
The good news is that in Steve Job’s case, they failed and inspiration, leadership and genius was invited back to save their pocketbooks, and enrich our lives. There is a lesson here about what is wrong with American companies and corporations.
