Is this a joke?The news coming from our Bloomberg terminal is that Yahoo’s board is forming a committee to investigate CEO Scott Thompson’s educational background.

A committee?

What?

HOW HARD IS THIS?

He should stand up in front of the board and offer an explanation.

If his explanation stinks, he’s gone.

If it’s just OK, he’s gone.

If it is ENTIRELY CONVINCING, he can stay! 

(But the board better start making calls to potential replacements).
