In the news: Petraeus, McAfee

Okay, in the news with big headlines, the whole Petraeus saga.

Yesterday I was driving to a client and had WTOP (Washington, DC news station) on the radio.
The first thing that struck me was that they called it a sex scandal. Really?
So now an affair is called a sex scandal?

I do think that what he did to his wife was wrong and I also think that the FBI should investigate what he has exchanged with his mistress since he was the head guy of intelligence as a matter of security.
But what about what he shared with his wife, why isn’t that a security risk?
Then there is the other woman, yeah, investigate her too and the other general who had contact with her.
Heck, let’s just investigate everybody who has had contact with Petraeus, his mistress, his wife, the other woman, the other general.

Here’s another example of the press just jumping on a story like vultures and blowing things out of proportion.

And then there is John McAfee, the founder of McAfee Anti-Virus software.
This guy is so out of touch with reality, I think paranoia is the right word for him.

His neighbor got killed execution style after he legibly poisoned McAfee’s dogs.
The dogs were already buried when police came to talk to McAfee and McAfee buried himself in the sand with a cardboard box over his head to hide from the police because he is afraid the police will kill him.
Seriously? Paranoia 101.
So, do you think his dog story is not paranoia?

This is a 67 year old guy who likes to hang out with 17 year old girls.
He still has a few millions left so those girls love it.
Uh, McAfee, that’s a little sick, isn’t it?

And you trust your virus protection to McAfee?

Just kidding, he hasn’t been involved with the company for many years now.
I wonder if they are going to rename the company now.


  1. One note on the Petraeus thing:
    Why do we spend so much money on this? Doesn’t the government have more pressing issues to spend money on?
