Mike Ilitch, who founded Little Caesars and who owned the Detroit Red Wings and Detroit Tigers, died on Friday at the age of 87.
Ilitch took over on paying Parks’ rent in 1994 when he heard that there were some concerns over her welfare and safety when she became the victim of assault and robbery. He continued to pay her rent up until she died in 2005.
“It’s important that people know what Mr. Mike Ilitch did for Ms. Rosa Parks because it’s symbolic of what he has always done for the people of our city,” ~ U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Damon Keith said in 2014.
okay but…Wayne Enterprises. There is no way that Thomas Wayne, a doctor, could fundamentally have managed both careers. In name, yes, but not in presence. He was a DOCTOR. Do you know how many hours doctors work?
With these thoughts established, I think we all know what I’m leading to.
Martha Wayne probably ran the company.
Had a question? Martha Wayne. Needed a signature? Martha Wayne. Had a pitch? Martha Wayne.
It was a well-oiled system, but there needed to be an acting CEO. And I believe that acting CEO would be Martha.
This, of course, brings up little five year old Bruce being brought to the office whenever she needed to pop in.
I’M NOT SAYING think about tiny Brucie dashing through the halls and the older employees remembering those occasions every time they look upon their fine and respectable CEO adult Bruce Wayne, but…it’s there if you want it.
The fetishization of “opinion” and “free speech” is horrifying, people thinks it means they can saying anything anywhere
without ever being criticized or held accountable or disagreed with regardless of their education on a subject.
