    "In the spirit of Charles Darwin, the Darwin Awards commemorate individuals who protect our gene pool by making the ultimate sacrifice of their own lives. Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chances of long-term survival."
    Did they include Trayvon Martin in last years awards or would he be in this year's awards?

    An honorary award should go to Scott Davis for sacrificing any chance of his staying on as CEO by under-staffing this year for peak, thereby improving our company's chances of long-term survival.

    He is gone as soon as the contract is approved.
    Also, I doubt very seriously if Scott Davis had anything to do with peak planning.
    He may have had it reviewed with him and the other Management Committee members but that would be the extent of his involvement.
    Somebody probable wrote a script for him to read if he even did that.

    Sorry, it was just a joke. Actually judging by the stock, UPS is likely making a killing this peak by sacrificing the family lives of it's employees. Completely unethical and I would argue immoral, but that extra cash the decision makers will be pocketing will not help them obtain any "lasting" reward.

    By the time it made it to him for review it had been so sugar coated it would be meaningless to him anyway.

    Here Is The Glorious Winner:
    1. When his .38 caliber revolver failed to fire at his intended victim during a hold-up in Long Beach, California would-be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder. He peered down the barrel and tried the trigger again. This time it worked.


    Doh!

    In the case of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, seems to me you could make an argument that the gene pool is still only half clean at the moment. Just sayin'
