Why Yahoo is Failing : No Strategic Ability

Dear Yahoo Executives,
If you are wondering why your company is failing, it is because you don’t get the internet.
What were you all thinking last week when you decided to layoff one of the founding employees who is now one of the two most public facing and world popular employees of your most important property?
After this bonehead move of exceedingly bad strategy and timing, everyone involved in the decision to layoff George Oates should be fired asap.
Sincerely, Jenifer Hanen
Update from Tues 12.16.08:
Jeremy and Jeffrey both weigh in on George getting laid off.
