I don't know about Steenland, but in the '80s, when Reagan was president, his policies toward business was "laissez-faire". With such policies, plus deregulation and Wall Street raider such as Icahn & Lorenzo, you have the result!
How many airlines CEO in the world like Gordon Bethune do you know ? There isn't that many of them! I think, it depends on what your ethic is!
Who do you think should oust Steenland? Justice? Employees?
In Airways Magazine in 2001 if I remember well, there was a report on airlines leaders called something like "Dumb & Dumber". It was quit interesting to read who did what and for how much money....
