Michael Bloomberg is Returning to Bloomberg LP

It seems like only yesterday that Michael Bloomberg was chiding us for drinking large sodas and eating too much salt. In fact, that was about nine months ago. During the time since he vacated the mayor’s office, Bloomberg has become bored. And so he’s returning to a little company called Bloomberg LP, as its CEO.

According to The New York Times, Bloomberg is taking over the company from Dan Doctoroff, who prefers to resign rather than continue with the way things have been. Doctoroff told the Times that when a man returns to a company he founded and still carries his name, that’s pretty much a wrap:

Mike is kind of like God at the company. He created the universe. He issued the Ten Commandments and then he disappeared. And then he came back. You have to understand that when God comes back, things are going to be different. When God reappeared, people defer.

How much do you think Bloomberg is going to like hearing himself described as a god? On a scale of “Oh he’s going to love it” to “He might die from happiness.”
