Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
I know this is a solemn day. But even today, you have to laugh a little.
Here's something from the Dilbert creator's website about how to look smarter than you are:
"It’s important to agree with people if you want them to think you are a genius. For most people, the definition of smart is “Thinks exactly like me but even more so.” If you think that disagreeing and offering excellent reasons for your thinking will change anyone’s mind, you might be new on this planet."
Sometimes some of you forget this when you are talking to me . . . or maybe you just don't care whether or not I think you are a genius. . .
Either way - thanks. You keep me humble. Sort of like Ash Wednesday. (See! It all circles around!)
