Not good enough...

It's a sad state of affairs. People these days just don't seem to care. Work ethic is at an all time low and apparently the satisfaction of a job well done just isn't important any more. Perhaps the Echoboomers are to blame. They've been encouraged and awarded in their youth for doing an average job. It's being taught these days that being #1 is selfish. Everyone is getting trophies and awards for being #8. It may be hurtful to leave anyone out. It's affecting the workforce as new young professionals don't have the drive to succeed or think independently. This could drag the American economy down even further.

It's apparent that this attitude is not just simply an American trait. It's spreading. As far as I'm concerned if you're going to do something you may as well do it right. Where's the follow-through? I'm referring to the recent incident in Georgia (the former Soviet republic, not the state). It seems that someone threw a grenade toward President Bush during a speech yesterday but it landed about 100 feet short. I'm disappointed in this individual. Didn't he/she practice throwing grenades at a target? Shouldn't he/she have a back-up grenade? 100 feet short? (Was it Joey Harrington?) They weren't even trying. If you're not going to do the job right you may as well not do it at all. It's embarrassing. It's okay to be #1. Practice your throws for a while and try it again. Do the world proud. As long as it takes...


PS. If you don't hear from me for a while it's probably because the Secret Service is looking for me.
