My wife piped up and told him that there was no way we were packing up our family and moving to that liberal sespool! I about had a heart attack. Before I could apoligize to the CEO for my wifes unrestrained honesty, he replied........."I know! We can't get anybody to move out there! Why do you think the position is still open?" We all had a laugh. My laugh was a bit more uneasy than others.
It sounds like a very conservative company with conservative employees and employee spouses. Is it one of those companies that's a person?

It is a very conservative company. Even though it is very large, it is still wholely owned by a single family. Funny thing is that it is based out of San Francisco. But the owner, was a close friend of Ronald Regan and was instrumental in getting him to run for president. Very interesting family. Certainly what I call "the other half." They are rich beyond our wildest dreams. But still very down to earth and approachable. Looking at them, you would never guess they had the kind of money that they have.
