If USAir has a disasterous crash tomorrow (God forbid), and the heads of the corporation announce their resignations because of it, I’d be pissed. I expect those in charge to take charge, to get to the bottom of the problem, and come up with some answers and new solutions. It doesn’t matter if you are the of a family, the head of a company, or the head of a nation. If someone(s) you are responsible for is at fault, or makes mistakes, you do something about it. You don’t throw your hands up in the air and say, hey, I’m leaving this mess behind because it’s not my responsibility. It’s a cop-out approach to resolving issues, and in the case of political or corporate positions, the time it will take to adjust to the new administration/staff only puts the real problems on hold. This of course does not apply to those who are directly at fault, who have committed an act of crime, irresponsibility, etc., such as Nixon. The way politicians resign left and right in Taiwan is something which I still find unacceptable. I don’t know if it’s a cultural thing, East versus West, etc., but I do know that in the U.S., people do not resign when things go wrong. The public may CALL for resignation sure, but here, whenever disaster strikes, the only real response I know I can rely on from those in charge is the announcement of their resignations in tomorrow’s paper.
