Second-Guessers


Let us sit somewhere comfortable and question why the police officer who entered a strange apartment behaved properly when there was the chance that a maniac with a shotgun might suddenly emerge from a backroom.

Let us sip some wine and shake our heads at the combat leader's decision to call in an artillery strike.

Let us scoff at the political leader's failure to get a perfect picture of a cloudy situation even though a perfect picture seldom and perhaps never exists. If that same leader fails to act in time? Well, we can excoriate the delay as a sign of indecisiveness.

Ours is a popular profession. There are no risks.
