Further points of interest:
1. His daughter committed suicide in March. He has other daughters.
2. His wife is a producer on JL and is also stepping away.
3. He has hired Joss Whedon to run post production and reshoots.

That's a really big difference. Why does it exist?

+Lisa Hirsch makes a really great point about the productivity of musicians:

To provide on example, the orchestra for the first attempt at performing Tristan und Isolde had something like 50 or 60 rehearsals before everybody threw in the towel and declared the opera unperformable. Contrast that with the San Francisco Opera orchestra

I've been drinking tea every morning for ... well, a long time. I endorse Alice's embrace of tea. And then she says something really good about "culture fit", and what a self-defeating thing this can be. "culture fit" is not about whether you like beer pong or roller hockey or whether you built a computer with your dad.

No, companies need something that creates a sense of "we", but it needs to be something everyone can do, and few people outside the company do. Something like singing the company song, which the Japanese do, or used to do. After all, nobody outside the company would sing this dumb song, would they?

John Oliver: Making racist comments is not how you win the net neutrality fight. It's how you win the presidency.

Seriously, Ajit Pai's race/national origin has nothing to do with this. Tools come in every shape and size.
