How did we miss this one?

Oh, undoubtedly you are right... it's just that when it comes to my wife, I want her to be as safe as humanly possible. I don't want to sound like I'm mental illness witch hunter, but when Nigel mentioned that aspect of the bullying phenomena, the story (which is still ongoing, that incident I mentioned only happened a matter of weeks ago) popped into my head.
My wife recently hired a young woman, who in the interview seemed extremely exceptional... she was outgoing, intelligent, had all the right schooling and references... her first week there she came to my wife in a panic that someone had given out her information to a guy who was stalking her online. My wife obviously took this very seriously, and took her to a board room to discuss... the conversation quickly broke down as the female described the situation it seemed obvious (I don't recall the exact details at the moment) that it would have been impossible for this individual to have gained any information about the female, at least from her very very new job.
A week or so later, she came to my wife again, in tears. She claimed that her co-workers were in cahoots against her, talked about her all the time behind her back, made running jokes at her expense, and finally deleted the work she had due. My wife has known her co-workers for years, and obviously found all this a little hard to swallow. Keep in mind she's been at this job for less than three weeks at this point. My wife gets IT to look into the issue, and they discover that the work was never on the computer to begin with. Suddenly the new girl remembers that she had it all on a flash drive, which she must have taken home. Or maybe one of the other employees stole it, trying to sabotage her.
Also, somewhere in this conversation her stalker comes up again, but this time the stalker is a female. Someone from high school, apparently. When my wife mentions the male stalker, the girl begins to cry that nobody ever understands her.
I told my wife: you have to get rid of this chick before she comes in and stabs the fuck out of everyone. And get your supervisor to do the firing. That seems like a lot of warning signs to me. Am I right?
What a shock. I wonder if he's still going for the "crap satan" look. The last load of mugshots with that shitty goatee made him look hilarious.
Mangrove, even if you're right, NEVER GET IN THE WAY OF A GOOD POLEMIC.
Anyway, I still hate Chick Corea with the passion of a thousand suns.
How the hell did Herbie Hancock turn out so fucking cool if he started in Jazz?
This man made it his life's work to ruin three, I repeat, three kinds of music-- and he succeeded.
This is the guy that decided it would be a great idea to graft jazz, rock and roll, and latin american music together in a hideous, Frankenstonian Cerebus of a genre called "Jazz Fusion".
So awful was his power that he was able to convice Miles Davis that this was a good idea. Granted, Miles was on a lot of heroin at the time, but still...
What's worse is that this is directly responsible for the abject horror we know as "soft jazz". And because of that, RWHN.
I want to go back in time and crush this man's fingers with a 10-pound hammer.
