It's What You Know...... Is'nt It?

 Jobs for the boys?

I worked for a multinational company that was owned by a small family group. On the retirement of the head of the family we were told that a world wide search was made to find his successor. After scouring the globe to find someone with the necessary credentials of dynamism, foresight and leadership this man had been found. He turned out to be the second son of the family! :doh:

  It's not what you know....It's not who you know....It's what you know about who you know!

Set a man on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

And name recognition.  People vote for the name they know.  The movie The Distinguished Gentleman was based on that.  The main character had the same name as a US Congressman that died and he got elected on name only.
