Uh oh, they're on to you, Al

Have you ever sat through a shareholder's meeting?  Trust me, having your wisdom teeth removed is less painful.  There is always that one person who refuses to dispense with reading of the last meeting's minutes.  Cold. Hard. Miserable. Misery.  And that's before they start going over the financial statements.  And yet...

At the first opportunity for audience participation just several minutes into the proceeding, a longtime and well-known Apple shareholder--some would say gadfly--who introduced himself as Shelton Ehrlich, stood at the microphone and urged against Gore's re-election to the board. Gore "has become a laughingstock. The glaciers have not melted," Ehrlich said, referring to Gore's views on global warming. "If his advice he gives to Apple is as faulty as his views on the environment then he doesn't need to be re-elected."
Well, hot damn!  With any luck this is the first in a long line of people standing up and saying that Al Gore is a phony and bad for business.  He deserves to be called out in public.  Bless you, Shelton Ehrlich, wherever you are.
