On Standards & Quality (July 20, 2015)  

. . .

4          “If I look up and can see the bar, I drop everything and raise the bar until I cannot see it.  Even with a pair of 10 by 40s.  I am not interested in surmounting a bar I can see.  I then move the bar down the field and out of sight.  Outta sight, inna mind.”

. . .

4          “That is true.  They say that if you hold someone to a higher standard, the person may aspire to reach the higher standard.  When I look around, however, at the end of the day the only way others can pass the bar is to drop the bar on the floor.  Maintain even low standards and no one passes.”

8          “So much gross incompetence and ineptitude today.  Perhaps it has always been that way.”

 . . . 

4          “If you hit a target they cannot see, they say that you missed the target they can see.”

. . .

4          “Build a better mouse trap and you may trap a few more mice.  Build it and you will need to buy a riding lawn mower.”

8          “Bloom where you are planted.  You may be able to trap more mice in your nicely manicured field.  Or you may decide to let the mice roam in a wild field.”

. . .

8          “Perhaps nobody cares.”
