Karmanos Resignation

My first take on the resignation of Jason Karmanos is that it probably doesn't foreshadow future profound changes. Jason has lived long enough in the shadow of pop and JR and probably wants to move out on his own. Good on ya brother.

Dude has investment banking experience and a degree from HahVahd. Jason is nearing the point of no return professionally, so now is as good a time as any to venture out and make his own mark on the world. Really, really rich folks are better at creating new private Idahos than the rest of us. Good luck Jason, but be ready to come back and save the franchise when that red phone rings or you see that beam of light in the sky.

I think you've got the right idea. Ten years is a long time at any job, even one you like. I'm sure he just wants to do something different.
