You should have to do a great job -- but only at those things which are reasonably within your control. Fire the coach for having injured players play? Sure. Fire the coach because he had an above-average number of injuries this year, and other teams less? No.

I'm not sure why you seem so convinced the people currently in charge of setting the direction for various aspects of the Nook tablet are the right people for that job.
I'm not convinced of that. I am convinced that internet pressure to fire people more often is not the way to a more prosperous, much less more humane, society.
