Olam and Muddy Waters

I pulled the last sentence from each paragraph of Muddy Water’s open letter to Olam, it makes for a nice mix of honest humor and corporate poetry.

To Olam CEO Sunny Verghese and the Board of Directors:

It has further evidenced a bizarre fixation on baseball caps.

We also note Olam’s attempts to impugn our credibility.

Your actions have been an abject failure of leadership.

Know this: You voluntarily came to the market, you subjected yourselves to its forces, and you must bear the consequences of your ineptitude.
Warmest Regards

I can’t help imagining Jon Stewart say “Bam” when I read the word ineptitude. If you’re interested in the full letter, it’s here.
