Tiger Mike was an non-nice individual. He knew it and reveled in it. Copies of these would occasionally float around the office when I worked in O&G. I haven't thought about them in years.
From what I gathered in talking to co-workers who were in the industry at the time and some who worked at that company, he could be a bit of a dick at times, but he was generally respected. O&G in the 70`s (at least in Houston) was an odd mash-up of cowboy culture and ultra-conservatism (except during OTC.) To try to disect these memos using the current mindset is folly.
