Grant Tinker & Mary Tyler Moore

Today’s birthday boy is Grant Tinker.

As the former chairman and CEO of NBC, Tinker became known as the “man who saved NBC.”  The funny this is that NBC has needed saving a lot of times.  I remember the Fred Silverman fiasco and the embarrassing Jeff Zucker era.  In fact, it’s the only network with one leader whose name instantly pops into my mind, never mind three former CEOs.

In my previous post I alluded to the innate competency of Capricorns.  Tinker’s name is synonymous with competency.  I feel the same way about myself, and every day I ask myself why I’m blogging for free while a guy like Jeff Zucker is able to make money doing anything besides washing cars.  For people who don’t believe that someone can be born “lucky,” all they have to do is look at that guy.  Tinker, on the other hand, deserved to make it to the top in true Capricorn style.

  1. Mary Tyler Moore is also a Capricorn. As a Gemini, I know that other Geminis drive me crazy because, while they mirror my best traits, they mirror my worst traits. Do Capricorns usually get along?
