    Amazing quote! Unfortunately, in practically every aspect of our lives we tend to be dazzled by that one moment or talent that is brilliant and pretend the general incompetence everywhere else doesn't exist.....and then suffer the consequences emotionally and financially later.

    It's all good, Mike, thanks. I have been inundated with political pablum in my inbox as election day nears -- I have just been shutting everything out while I get some work done. I love it when the East Coast shuts down from a hurricane -- a little disorder is a good reminder of reality. ;-)
