It would appear that Mr. Perkins was not only responding to this epsiode on his own behalf, but by proxy, on behalf of Bill & Dave:

"My history with the Hewlett-Packard Company is long and I have been privileged to count both founders as close friends."

"...It now needs, urgently, to correct its course."

Good for him.
