terse & at large

GRRRRR. Arrrgh. And sometimes a travel log.

To think about...

1. Why do we bother with 'consultation' when you know the final answer will always be what makes economic sense? Forget social sense.

2. "God is my Co-pilot" says the sticker on a the back of a van transporting art materials (I assume, from the name of the company). I guess that's why the driver is speeding down Frankel Avenue talking on his cellphone; God's doing the paying attention and concentrating for him.

3. It's generally not a good idea to have an easily-remembered license plate number if you're a cab driver and you're intent on pissing off your fares.

    No idea about (2) or (3), but here is my theory for (1).

    Hypothesis :-

    * 'consultation' offers serfs a sense of participation in the decision making process

    * a sense of participation would make some (if not, most) serfs happy and contented

    * happy and contented serfs make good economic sense

    Hence, 'consultation' makes good economic sense.
