OooWeeOoo

Sure, but . . .

When you’re unfettered by any mandate to do it cheap, or quick, or easily, you are finally free to do it well. You are free to make it really good and really good for the right reason: for goodness’s sake.  Hallelujah!

"But cheaper and quicker is better!  And easier is better, too!"  I hear you squeal.  "No it is not," I reply.  Is a Smart Car better than a Rolls Royce?  No it is not.  It is more readily attainable is what it is.  I'm talking about that rare set of circumstances in which ready attainability is moot---we're going to do it well this time because we can.  Just this once.
OooWeeOoo

I think I did what I could, given my myriad diseases and such.  At least that’s what I told them.
. . .

Middle managers and their minions are taught to remain completely inert in every situation.  With their level of aptitude and authority, if they open their mouths, they can only lose.  Best say nothing.  And remain expressionless.  It’s like turning into a rock and hiding under yourself.  You can’t get more effective than that.  Not these days.  Not in America.
. . .

Engage me in proper operation, Baby!  Then engage me twice!  (Engage me two times; I’m goan away, as it were [and even as it weren’t {amen, Baby, doncha know!}].)
