About 4 or 5 years ago I sent Tom a full color Sunday feature article about a steel industry executive affectionately known as the "Predator". I figured Tom and his cohorts at the Baffler would get a kick out of reading about the management philosophy of the "Predator" as told to the Lorain Morning Journal. Incidentally, the "Predator" is a product of the Gary-Chicago school of steel mill management.
The big news is the "Predator" quit the mill Friday afternoon around 1pm. This is a shock because the "Predator" was fairly well thought of here and in Gary and was considered X steel corporations man in this area.
