HP CEO Feelin' Fine, Low-Level Gumshoe Feeling Low

According to reports, Mark Hurd, the head of HP, was copied on a key memo discussing an investigation into reporters, employees and directors looking for leaks (Hurd neglected to read the memo and missed part of a key meeting on the subject, he says). Hurd is still running meetings, making the covers of business magazines and doin' fine.

Meanwhile a 29-year-old peon (let's call him Scooter Libby Jr.) from the PI firm with all the sneaky tactics, pled guilty to identity theft -- all for doing the bidding of HP execs.
