I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn about these IBM bid-rigging allegations

See here. The O.B. (Original Borg) has been suspended from seeking business with the federal government as part of an investigation into allegations of bid-rigging on a deal with the EPA. Really? IBM? Cheating? You’ve got to be kidding. No way. Uh-huh. I mean it’s not like they’ve got a history of doing stuff like this.

Only kidding. Look, I’ve been battling these guys since the Seventies. There’s nobody on earth I trust less, other than Finns. But that’s a different story. I just called Jerry York and told him about this and he said, “Sleazy stuff like this never would have happened when Lou Gerstner and I were running the place.” Then we both burst out laughing.
