Overstock vs. the Sith

The Register has a sad little story on how has bungled a ton of orders-- well, at least their order and several dozen online shoppers-- and the CEO's uh, proclivities.

Seems CEO Patrick Byrne is a wack job. He's convinced some "Sith Lord" is out to "get" Overstock. Never mind the site is screwing up, never mind orders aren't being fulfilled, never mind customer service reps are hanging up on paying customers... Nope, none of this is Overstock's fault. It's those pesky Sith.

Wow. That web bubble is about to pop (belatedly) for yet another online retailer. Read it to believe it. Hard to imagine a guy like that is a CEO.
