I was disappointed that your publication gave the publicity space to Stepco on behalf of Mr. Mohammad in your Jan. 21st publication (“Exec lands Stepco post after prison,” Page 1). Although I do not believe Mr. Mohammad should have been provided this opportunity in your publication, I do think it points out that in his mind the entire business world is somehow corrupt, bends or breaks every rule and this justified his actions. Given the recent Enron issues, I can just imagine Mr. Mohammad thinking he now has additional justification.
In the article, Mr. Mohammad presumes to speak for everyone when he says, “We always ride the edge of breaking the rules out here, in the business world.” He does not speak for all of us. There is still honesty, integrity and ethical practices left in business today, although I am sure it is not with Mr. Mohammad. He should move up to politics.
