Abstract

I can’t resist starting out with a “Murphy’s Law,” and this one is: If a problem causes many meetings, the meetings become more important than the problem. The success of a committee is really measured by the reuslt of its effort. The moose, for instance, is an animal designed by a committee; it’s too big, it has to kneel down to eat, it spends a lot of time up to its ears in deep water, it has a number of nonfunctional appendages, and it requires government protection for survival.
