OK, this is officially THE first time I'm using this Abbreviation ever (upon seeing who the Jim Jones really was)
Good one, kool bubba
PS: And it's the last time...seriously
I don't recall BOSE offering me spiked Kool-Aid or inviting me into a cult. Perhaps the Ray Kroc of Audio.
And by Bose being the Ray Kroc I mean of course Amar Gopal Bose, not the company, because likening a company to a person would be stupid.
Tough call. Jones killed around a thousand people. Kroc changed the face of the country, even the world, permanently.
Though I think that perhaps if Kroc didn't massify food, someone else would have - the currents of rationalization are far older than that, and don't stop for anyone, so perhaps he was just the right person at the right time.
Either way, I think likening the creator of Bose to someone who created a company that taught us how to be satisfied with mediocrity is a better analogy than to a cult zealot crazy man.
