I'm a fan, guys, but this wasn't your best effort. Felt like you were "mailing it in."

"Stick with me babe." "I know all about you women." ",,,businesses tend to put women in charge when organizations are in decline, in crisis. After all, the gals are expendable — and they're sure not going to be picked when the organization is soaring."

What moron in Hartford Courant's management put this idiot Cohen in its publication? And what idiot is sitting there thinking that this moron Cohen still deserves to be published?

You're absolutely right, Professor Barreca. Your linking your name with Laurence Cohen's is most definitely risking your professional reputation. Really. The longer you keep on dancing journalistically with this sexist idiot, the more people will question just what in the world you are thinking to continue with this.

This is abolutely shameful. Laurence Cohen is obviously too dumb to understand it; one would hope that Professor Barreca is smart enough to figure it out- and quit. We would hope, anyway.
