This Idea Just Hit Me (Like A Shot To The Brain)

In case anyone needed a clearer message about waste and fraud, The New York Times has provided one:
Leaders in business, politics and academia from around the world will gather in Davos, Switzerland, this week to try to rescue the planet. It’s a safe bet that, for the 41st year in a row, they will fail.
Maybe it's time we get someone, other than the so-called "leaders", to actually lead, huh?

And - since they can't come up with a phrase other than the cultist-inspired "saving the planet" - maybe we should call them "lemmings", rather than "leaders", what do you say?

UPDATE: WE were right - again.


  1. You feel hostility toward certain linguistic conventions.

    Got it.

  2. When they come out of cults, yea, it bothers me to see them adopted by the larger society.

    So tell me, Anonymous, have you found your "soul mate" yet?

  3. I'm not sure what you mean by "soul mate", but if you mean that one special person who was put on this Earth just for me and we're deliriously happy together, then the answer is no, of course not.

    No such person exists for anybody.

    Satisfaction is a function of expectation and performance, with a little bit of determination-to-be-satisfied thrown into the mix.

    That's true for relationships and for everything else, I should imagine.

  4. Well, boy-oh-boy, it sure is popular!

  5. Popular ideas?

    They have their uses, I suppose.

    I'm mostly too lazy to bother.
