"Helle, Yes"

Surely we "indigenous hillbillies" have not become so "moral majority straight" that we can't laugh at life's little improv humor.  I suspect that Lori Helle,  Branson's new CFO (chief financial officer),  has  absorbed more than a few "Oh Hell" jokes. Indeed, there are rumors that as she acclimates to her new responsibility she routinely is heard muttering "Oh Hell".  

In these "high politics" days when at least half of the people in America want the leader of the free world to be a minimally experienced/educated, but moral/ authentic, "soccer mom", one would have to conclude that Helle is prepared for her job. Hell, a quick search of Hells'  soccer prowess puts poor "point guard sara" to shame.  Further to her credit, while she is trying to lead our most atypical "billion dollar small town" into the perilous 21st century, she is at least taking "business classes" at a community liberal arts college"  As the gum chewing bridge inspector on the TV commercial says, "That should do it!"  

In all seriousness, this is no doubt a fine young lady, facing a task that most of us can't even imagine.  We may be blessed by her profile blend of long tenacity and short credentials.  I suspect a "Ben Barnacke look- a- like" wouldn't have touched the job with a ten foot pole.
