J&J boss buys $8M Palm Beach property, fires 8,000: report

"Just a week before announcing that Johnson & Johnson will cut some 8,000 jobs, J&J chair and chief executive Bill Weldon plunked down $8.45 million for two adjacent vacant waterfront lots in North Palm Beach, Fl," in an exclusive private-beach development, says www.pharmalot.com, citing the Palm Beach Post here.

We're not saying Weldon didn't earn it. We don't know enough about J&J to say that with authority. We're just saying, he's got poor timing, or doesn't much care about the times he's bossing in.
