I was reminded of one of my favorite quotations today, It's sometimes referred to as Hanlon's Razor: "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
Lastly, while my parents were in town we had very mediocre Chinese at the Jade Garden. The highlight of the meal for me was the fortune cookies. I'm very much a fan of the silly little joke where you add "in bed" to the end of the fortune (which is much better than adding "between the sheets" as some of my aquaintances tend to do.) The three fortunes were:
- It is imposible to please everybody. Please yourself first.
- Don't allow yourself to dream away time - be productive.
- The smart thing is to prepare for the unexpected.
