The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

The Six Phases of Planning

I had forgotten about this neat little summation of the planning process, but was reminded today in an EMail from the Editor of the Joint Force Quarterly:

Phase 1:  Wild enthusiasm.
Phase 2:  Surprise, shock, and disillusionment.
Phase 3:  Total confusion.
Phase 4:  Search for the guilty.
Phase 5:  Punishment of the innocent.
Phase 6:  Promotion of non-participants.

And so it goes, project after project.

One might apply this axiom to the health care reform mess.
