Niagara Gazette — After all, our triumphs will be in our proper demonstration of our humanity to each other, and not in our animal nature of self-preservation.
Note: Not to give Obama and the government credit for this column, but I must thank my diverse focus group who gave it a first read and made some excellent suggestions to improve it.
Anecdote of the week: A young associate at a local cellphone store recently helped me to ‘right-size’ my telephone service and bill by encouraging me to use a low-tech flip phone with my tablet, rather than having two, expensive “smart devices.”
When I questioned her about the loss of flexibility in so doing, she said, “We can save you money; but it is going to cost you.”
As funny as it sounds, she is one of the few people with whom I have ever spoken that seemed to understand the proper relationship between “price” and “cost.”
Now if only our governments would either be as honest as a cellphone associate or if they can learn the lessons that she teaches!Contact Ken Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
