Well, my personal interests lie across a few genres. I too was a little taken aback by the degree of Pat's hostility, but I can understand outrage when a pretender walks in and pretends to be someone he is not.
I think that pretty much happens in every walk of like, every job, every department..there's always this one person, usually unqualified, usually a schmoozer, usually has a great smile, someone the rest of the office universally hates, usually gets the biggest raise. KG is this guy, for Jazz.
