retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Wall Street Journal reports on the "quiet departure" of Justin Dye from Albertsons, where, until last month, he was the chief administrative officer seen as a potential successor to CEO Bob Miller.

The departure was said to be friendly, and designed to let Dye spend more time with his family in Florida.
KC's View:
I always wonder, when I see the "he wants to spend more time with his family" line, whether the person's family really wants to spend time with him.

This has nothing to do with Dye. It has more to do with my family, which tends to urge me to find a reason to get on the road if I've been around for more than three weeks in a row.
