Re: “The hot zone

I've listened to what everyone's said, and I have to say that I have to agree with JohnD on this one. From personal experience, I've learned that it's often OK to re-define what success is, as long as success is something that makes sense. Take a look at Iraq, for example. We've re-defined success from the initial "seeking out WMD" to "spreading Democracy to the middle-east". Sure, taken at face value it seems ridiculous, but what's the end result going to be? By the end of 2008, George Bush is going to be telling the world that the Iraqi people are seeing us leave as liberators. If that's not success, I don't know what is. Another analogy, if I may: A long time ago, I used to work for a company that set out to deliver a highly elegant and scalable product (analogous to 'highly elegant and scalable fire protection solution'). Things were challenging, but our shareholders (anal. to 'NRC') stayed the course, and in doing so, allowed us to deliver a product (anal. to 'fire protection solution'). When the going got tough, management (anal. 'management') tried to convince me to stay the course ('success'), but I made the obvious mistake of cutting and running ('miserable failure'). Had I stuck around, I would be enjoying a significantly higher stock price ('Yay. No nuclear explosion.') right now. I'm just saying.
