There is always a trade off, either way you go. And both have associated "costs" as Sterling "Chip" Camden pointed out above. Of course, I don't always get to choose either. Something about paying bills and eating get in the way. Maybe I did get ?Lucky? on that one, I don't know. They won't be paying me either, that's not real lucky. I haven't always had the chance to choose, thanks to the military. One must do what needs to be done, and more than once I was in over my head. Sometimes literally. (Damn; I hate snakes) I can sympathise with you Col. When I had my own business many years ago, I faced the same mentality. ?But I want you to do it.? Or, even better of course, ?I don't care what it costs, just get it done?. Sounds good until amnesia sets in on the way to the bank.
Oh-well Life's a gamble. (just don't bet the farm.!.) -d
