CEO to zero: Latte, home

The cover of today's MyCareer section in The Age:

  1. That graph seems to plot a catastrophic career landslide to the bottom, rather than a meteoric rise to CEO. Unless of course we are supposed to read the graph from her point of view, in which case she is drawing it on a transparent whiteboard. Oh, that's commonly called a "window".
  2. Is anyone else as confused as I am by the cliché "meteoric rise"? Don't meteors commonly burn away to nothing as they plummet to the ground? That's not a "rise" in my book. Or this guy's book, for that matter.
