If I'm a PM at Scout Capital, Trian, Cedar Rock, MSD, Calamos, BlackRock, RenTec or Two Sigma, all of which own a significant number of shares in the pizza purveyor, my takeaways are: 1. Passion 2. Teamwork 3. Initiative 4. Ingenuity 5. Ability by middle management to read between the lines and infer that corporate's edict to "torch the competition" was meant literally. Alternatively, if I'm a certain someone who walked away, dumping all but a couple shares retained simply for the free slices, I'm thinking I made the biggest mistake of my life underestimating these two.

Two managers of a Domino's Pizza restaurant in Lake City have been charged with arson in connection with a fire that gutted a Papa John's Pizza location. Late Friday, police said they were still looking for an ignition device that the men claimed they made but did not use to start the fire. The fire was discovered Oct. 20 shortly before 3 a.m. at the Papa John's Pizza at 2815 NW U.S. 90. By the time the blaze had been brought under control, the business had been gutted, according to Lake City Police Department spokesman Capt. John Blanchard...Police said Sullivan's motive was that the Domino's location he was managing would see an increase in business if the Papa John's restaurant was put out of business. Instead, the possibly still active device may be lying alongside Interstate 75, police said.Police said that, during an interview, the suspects said they made an ignition device by using about an eight-inch-long clock, a 9-volt battery, one golf-ball-size amount of black powder gunpowder, and a plastic bag.
