X Y Z

1. The term ‘X’ is an agreement between a company and an employee (usually upper executive) specifying that the employee will receive certain significant benefits if employment is terminated. The first known use of ‘X’ dates back to when creditors sought to oust Y from control of Z airlines. The creditors provided Charles Tillinghast an employment contract dubbed an ‘X’ with protection against the almost definite job loss Tillinghast would have faced if Y had successfully maintained control of Z. The use of ‘X’ has significantly increased in 2008 due to the global economic recession, especially being used by news media and in the 2008 Presidential Debates. What are X, Y & Z?
2. X was an Academy Award-winning director, writer, actor and producer for film, stage, radio and television, and is perhaps best known for directing, starring-in, producing and co-writing the film Y. The October 30, 1938 radio broadcast of Z by X brought him notoriety and instant fame on both a national and international level. The fortuitous mixture of news bulletin format with the between-breaks dial spinning habits of listeners from the rival Edgar Bergen/Charlie McCarthy program, created widespread confusion among late tuners. Panic spread among many listeners who believed the news reports of an actual invasion. The resulting panic was duly reported around the world and disparagingly mentioned by Adolf Hitler in a public speech a few months later. Tell me X , Y & Z.
