The Clueless Business Interviewer

 "Well, I've got a lot of callings. You can't just limit it to one. Five years ago, I almost did this. I almost said at 20 years, maybe I should do something that I've always wanted to do, which is return to the great books and continue to study philosophy and political theory and things that I love. So can't really do that and run a business at the same time. It really boils down to that."

An uber-successful Chicago restaurateur throw out a statement like that and this moron only wants to talk about the business that he is leaving behind, nothing about where this fella wants to head.

Talk about not understanding or caring about the life of the mind.  Idiot! 

Our renaissance man gets a nice little bitch slap in there accusing him of not listening: As I just said, maybe you didn't remember...

It's a short little story but tells a lot.  Half-assed journalism included.  

Note the title of the piece.
