SUCCESS AND FAILURE-- Tina Brown's story is the kind of story that scares me. Her story is the story of someone who rises to the top with hard work, intelligence and talent and then suddenly those things didn't work any more.
I read Andrew Sullivan's and Lucianne Goldberg wrote on her rise and fall in the last few days and I found both stories interesting. Here is someone who had everything going for them, who had arrived in a role of influence--was one of the elite shping the world we live in--and then fell.
What's scary to me is that even when she arrived she wasn't safe.
What's scary to me is that the reasons why she fell are the reaons she rose.
Luck can be a quirky thing. I guess Tina rode hers out.
