Good Enough For Government Work

Posted: November 18, 2010 in Technology and Business
My stepfather was a 20-year intelligence officer with the Army (speaks fluent Russian, does crossword puzzles in ink, etc.).  He used to have a phrase, "it’s good enough for government work."  Half the time it was a compliment… the other half a jab… it was up to we kids to be smart enough to know the difference.
It’s hard to disagree with the spirit of his piece.  Warren does a great job reminding us how scary it really was… and how important fast-action was, if not practically, emotionally.
However, hats off to Barry Ritholtz of Fusion IQ… he did a rebuttal that was so deadly accurate that I suspect even Buffet is blushing a bit… certainly something my stepfather will appreciate!
