Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Sunday, 2017.02.19
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred
by dust and sweat and blood...who knows the great enthusiasms, the great
devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the
end the triumph of high achievement, and ...if he fails, at least fails while
daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.

This from the New York Times, of all places:

“Iraq is a long way to go for a photo op, but not for President Bush, who is pulling out all the stops to divert public attention from his failed Iraq policies and to keep Congress from demanding that he bring the troops home.”

So, what say you? The Prez has totally incompetent PR folks working for him who would suggest going to Iraq would be an excellent way to divert public attention away from…er…Iraq. Or the NYT editorial dolts still think they’re writing for their 6th grade newspaper.

There was a time when “professional” meant something.
