A Word From MacBeth

     Once upon a time, long long ago, I had a friend at work who bought a newfangled personal computer. It was an Apple MacIntosh, and Bill could not work it to save his life. His cries for my assistance became so incessant, I told him to start screaming "MacBeth!" instead of "Beth!" so I could identify it as a computer emergency.

     MacBeth fell in love with desktop computers then and there. It would be a while before Bill Gates stole Steve Jobs' "windows" system, and I would get an affordable PC of my own.

     I have grown weary of people disparaging Mr. Jobs and his contributions to society. As far as I am concerned, he made a lasting impact on all of our lives, and did it with class and style.

     Here's to a classic American entrepreneur.

May he rest in peace, with love from MacBeth.

  1. Yes, he is an amazing, brilliant, dignified, introspective man; making an eternal impact on us all! And he was an adopted child, which I love. Highest regard to his birth mother who made a very selfless decision.
