Re: Guy who pushed wrong button in Hawaii

Doesn't matter if he was ADD or not. The interface should not have allowed such a major announcement without crosscheck with someone else, ideally a senior.

From what I've heard the interface design of the system was dire.

so .. yes... he is a fall guy, but that's what happens. The person who signed off the system is clearly incompetent.

Probably the Peter Principle applies... the senior manager who is responsible for the system has attained a level of super-incompetence and as such are untouchable. There they will remain, being super incompetent and disrupting anyone competent trying to fix the results of their incompetence.
