Commentary by management consultant Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
This reminds me of the Ray Bradbury story "And the Rock Cried Out," about a U.S. couple stranded in South America after a nuclear way destroys the U.S. Most people they meet won't help, since they perceive North Americans as their oppressors, and not the power is reversed. There's a minor character who befriends them, and when asked if he's read the news of what happened to North America, tells them that he *never* reads a newspaper when it first come out, he always sets them aside for a few weeks, as most news isn't really important.
Steve,Leave it to Ray Bradbury to come up with that. I confess to having a similar attitude. So many stories are like soap operas and can be followed after sizable lapses. Often, they are best followed after such lapses.Michael
