Stranger than fiction

Larry Ellison has married a fiction writer, and apparently people are speculating that he has a hand in writing her books.

Having worked for Mr. Ellison at Oracle, I can say that a lot of the documentation and marketing that came out of that company was fiction, and perhaps still is. He is very good at making stuff up on the spot.

It’s also interesting to me that the woman he has most recently married is about my age, was once a technical writer living in San Francisco, and is from Pittsburgh. Just like me! I was so close to marrying a billionaire! I can’t tell her hair color from the Wall Street Journal’s line drawing, but I’m betting it’s blonde. I saw him only in the company of attractive blondes. So no doubt that’s what held me back. There but for a bit of peroxide go I.
