What a wonderful contribution your daughter is making today!
Good for her.
I prayed for your upcoming surgery today at Mass.
Also prayers of thanksgiving for Desmond!
Anyone else need a prayer or two?


Nervanas one of the sharper analysts, part of radio hurra pretty much the only pro western network in the middle east, that's why you rarely hear of it, I came across hed in the khashoggi kerfluffle


Keying off captains contribution in the horde, kornilov was perhaps the only competent commander among the white Russians, it was his idea to dispatch Lenin right off which would have spared us the unpleasantness



Yes he is a big boy.

Last day or two they signed perhaps the best wide receiver coming out of high school also.



She has always been good at the events that require endurance.

I was a sprinter in high school, anything more than about 30 seconds, and I was out of my comfort zone.


Tiger is really coming on strong today.


Until that putt:)


Still a ways to go, but it's fun to see Buckeye.

I was binge watching Les Miserables which has been on for hours and hours and hours. It's my favorite movie and favorite play of all time, but those things end in 2 hours. This goes on all day and night, and it's sad as hell. I needed a change, and thank jib for posting that Tiger is playing.

matt - deplore me if you must

I lived in the world of continuous quality improvement for 35 years and Deming and Taguchi had a lot of good advice. It was when organizations like ISO came long that a lot started getting bogged down.

ISO 9000 became ISO 9001 became ISO 200762. It became ridiculous just to do the paperwork to keep up.

Bureaucracies breed paperwork.

We were working in automotive to reduce defects to 1 part/million, which is pretty amazing, which is why I still don't quite understand how some engineers overlook glaring defects.

Airbus had similar issues with dumbed down cockpits, but it seems that Boeing didn't learn from their experience very well. Takata' biggest business is airbags. When the Xbox first came Microsoft got hammered for several billion because of a design defect in a circuit board.

They tried to blame their vendor but MSFT signed off on all of the design work. Sometimes they forget to build in reasonable tolerances.


Matt, filing TPS forms is in the contracts. Producing something that works, not so much.


Is it true they built mcas with no backup?



Peggy Noonan, the simplistic writer for Trump Haters all, is stuck in the past glory of Reagan and has no idea what is happening with the Radical Left Democrats, or how vicious and desperate they are. Mueller had to correct his ridiculous statement, Peggy never understood it!
