Can't anybody say "You're fired"?

by Ben Langhinrichs
Wherein I bemoan the fact that bankruptcy is now considered a business tactic and not a failure.

Trump's casinos file for bankrupcty

The really sad lines are:
...last month clinched a restructuring pact with bondholders that would cut his stake in the company but preserved his role as chairman and chief executive.
and then a bit later
It marks the second bankruptcy for Trump's casino empire
His secondbnkruptcy, and they keep him on as chaiman and chief executive.  Bemoan, bemoan.

I agree, but that is Donald Trump for you... a special kind of talent.
