  2. I’m stunned by Milkshake’s story. It’s playing out like a modern day revenge tragedy. I recently saw a Royal Shakespeare Company performance of Titus Andronicus, one of my favorite early Shakespeare plays, and the Milkshake story hopefully won’t end with a meat pie being served to the new CEO and his university administrator wife.

    Riffing on the revenge tragedy theme, they never end well for the protagonist, as Milkshake is unfortunately discovering with his frustrations of finding a new position.

    I went into reading the story completely unaware. My first major chill was when I realized the first CEO was a hobbyist Ph.D. From wealthy family who was using the company (yes I remember it’s a work of fiction) to further his narcissistic goals and impress his family and party friends. Real world CEOs receive absurdly high compensation to keep their eyes 100% on the prize. Someone who has always had a lot of money is probably easier distracted by hobbies like showing up at the yacht club party with their homemade designer drugs. A scrappy rags to riches overachiever would be focused on leading the company to unicorn status and saving the lives of cancer patients as a collateral benefit.

    Best wishes to Milkshake.
