3. Marriott is already Mormon-owned, so I doubt it.

Not that he would anyway.

5. He was named after Willard Marriott, friend of his dad

Maybe they will reinstate porn pay channels, after ditching them when he started running for pres.Bet they lost a lot of money on that, and since the Mittster is all about $, he may let them change the policy.

7. Is he afraid to retire into irrelevancy

or something? I could see if he was getting these positions on merit, but his positions are still based on his father's coattails.

FFS, Willard-- enjoy your wife and 50 grandkids! Marriott will be just fine without your misguided help and mean spirited opinions about the "47 percent" aka "Marriott associates."
