The Great Coke Conspiracy

Joya Williams, a former secretary at the Coca Cola World Headquarters in Atlanta, faces up to ten years in prison following her conviction for participating in an plot to steal Coke secrets in order to try selling them to Pepsi.
Bad, bad, bad ! No Coke in the slammer for her.
Linked here is the Wikipedia article on Coca Cola, including a good discussion of corporate history, and lots of info about various products marketed by Coke, now and in the past. The history of Coke is an interesting subject, perhaps inclining you, as it did El Jefe, towards wandering in the direction of the refrigerator. A look at the Pepsi article gets you up to speed on Coke's big rival and should slake your thirst for Cola knowledge.

lemme' see if i got this correct?
this williams girl is facing the possibility of going to jail for 10 years for stealing a recipe.
and the NYT gives our operational info to our enemies then heralds themselves as defenders of liberty.
if the above is correct, it also explains why i went into engineering as opposed to law.

Yeah, if she'd only said that Coke was a well known supporter of the administration and she had a NYT subscription, she'd probably have got off scot-free.
