DEBATE AT LOLITA BAR: "Are Bosses Usually Jerks?"

Tue., Sept. 7 (the day after Labor Day), 8pm, at Lolita Bar (266 Broome St. at Allen St., one block south and three west of the Delancey St. F, J, M, Z subway stop).

Arguing yes: Lilit Marcus, author of Save the Assistants

Arguing no: comedian and entrepreneur Jen Dziura

Moderating: Michel Evanchik

Hosting: Todd Seavey

You may well be torn on this one — perhaps you’re planning to attend the following week’s Ayn Rand Institute event in Manhattan and love captains of industry.  On the other hand, you often suspect crazy people rise to the top, using as a tool their craziness.  How to resolve this tension?  Attend the debate, that’s how.  Perhaps you’d like to vent during our Q&A segment.

A very hardworking friend of mine points out this related Time article asking the important question: Is your boss a psychopath or just mean? (This question may, of course, be applicable to people in your life other than your boss.)
