Be glad you're not renting in Manhattan

More from the you-can't-make-this-stuff-up department. Richard Parsons, CEO of Time Warner, compares Google to General Custer and Time Warner to the Sioux.

How stupid is that? Let Michael Malone tell you:

But more than that, as others have noted elsewhere, it was the Sioux who lost the war. Comparing yourself to Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse at Little Big Horn may sound noble and heroic, but the final tally was that the Sioux were driven onto reservations, Crazy Horse was murdered and Sitting Bull ended up a novelty act in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (and then murdered).

Is this really the analogy he wanted to make?
