Quote of the day

"It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change."
–Charles Darwin

Well, some good news at last. We don't have to be the smartest OR the most intelligent -- just the most adaptable. Now all we have to do is make sure we are.

    Well, this assumes that you're not the weakest or the dumbest to begin with.

    I'm curious how many of "those days" you can have before you just, I don't know, die off?

    I hear from folks that days not all together unlike "those days" are somewhat common for you. I mean, "daily miracle" sure... but c'mon.

  2. Cheap shot, anonymous.

    Every business has 'those days.' radio stations lose transmitters, airlines cancel flights and pet food is tainted.

    It isn't the presence of 'those days' that proves the obsolescence of an industry; it is the inability to find solutions and keep the operation running.
