Cool post Cobb and I have been on Kenneth Chenault's jock all these years! It is wonderful to see us navigating the waters of commerce. I really hope this is a trend that continues. Once we understand capitalism and how money works, we can do GRRRRRRRRRREATTTTT things! Thanks for highlighting this cool fellow:)

I like the looks of that guy. The cocked eyebrow is pretty kick-ass for a CEO. He appears to have the most relaxed look I've ever seen on a CEO's face!
