So many differentways of being right

Dear Editor,

To Whom itmay concern: “Chrono-synclastic Infundibula-justimagine that your daddy is the smartest man who ever lived on earth and heknows everything there is to find out and he is exactly right about everythingand he can prove he is right about everything. Now imagine another little childon some nice world a million light years away and that little child’s Daddy isthe smartest man who ever lived on that nice world so far away. And he is justas smart and just as right as your Daddy is. Both Daddies are smart, and bothDaddies are right. Only if they ever met each other they would get into aterrible argument, because they wouldn’t agree on anything.

There is room enough for an awful lot ofpeople to be right about things and still not agree.

I have always made an effort to be part of the community I workand live in without thinking the only reason is to make the company I work forlook good. Making a positive difference for the community by growing a goodbusiness is part of what I do as part of the resort industry.
