Overheard in San Francisco

At the Clift on Geary Street, in the famous Redwood Room, three people are going over candidates for a high salary lateral hire to join their business. The boss, in his sixties, listens for a long while to a report about one candidate and then says:

"He's a person with no enemies in the industry? None? Sorry, but that's not very good news. That means we can trust him with small things, and he'll be loyal. But we can never give him anything risky or important to do. Who else do you have?"
