Feel Free to Nominate Me
I don't know who these people are or what they want, but apparently there's some contest going on to find the "Greatest Business Mind in Dallas." Me, I'd give it to ExxonMobil's outgoing chairman Lee Raymond, who's the recipient of "one of the most generous retirement packages in history, nearly $400 million, including pension, stock options and other perks, such as a $1 million consulting deal, two years of home security, personal security, a car and driver, and use of a corporate jet for professional purposes," according to this story from ABC News. No wonder gas prices are so friggin' high; thanks, Lee Raymond, you're one awesome human being. But if you have other candidates in mind, go here to vote for the Greatest Business Mind in Dallas. Winners will be announced here on April 26. Good luck, Lee. We're pulling for you. --Robert Wilonsky
