A Piece of Work

"---pieces of work make the world a far more interesting place. There's one at every workplace, a larger-than-life figure who gets away with anything, who inspires others to shake their heads in outrage or admiration, who causes bosses and underlings alike to mutter or scream: 'That So-and-So is a real piece of work.'

If you disagree with that sweeping statement -- if you're thinking there's nobody who remotely fits that description -- then I'm afraid the piece of work is probably you."

That from Eugene Robinson at the Washington Post, because I Googled and came up with him and Shakespeare. Guess which I preferred. Because what that excerpt is describing is POWER.
