There He Goes Again
Here’s how his latest piece opens:
There is an old saying in the Middle East that a camel is a horse that was designed by a committee.
Really? Because I kind of doubt it. “Designed by committee” is a metaphor used to explain why things are poorly designed and don’t work as well as they should – it’s because a lot of competing agendas had to be addressed to get the thing done, and the compromises made to accomodate those agendas rendered the final product less than optimal.
Would you use that phrase to describe the animal most suited to providing utility in your environment?
No, of course you wouldn’t.
Sounds like Tommy got flim-flammed by another cab-driver.
