My biggest question is how Chris went anywhere without his power house thinker John Mahoney and his powerful frontman Micheal Rubinoff. Bith off whose lives he destroyed. In the case of Mahoney - shredded his family, in the case of Rubinoff - left him mind numb by leapfrogging him over hard working long timers who were left behind or abandonned in the IPO. Pete Peterson should sit him down and have a talk about shame.
