The War for Evermore

Running a Business

“In 1990, the Government seized the Mustang Ranch brothel in Nevada for tax evasion and, as required by law, tried to run it. They failed and it closed. Now we are trusting the economy of our country, our banking system, our auto industry and possibly our health plans to the same nit-wits who couldn’t make money running a whore house and selling whiskey.” ~Anonymous*

… the story sounds good, but in fact the government did okay. That’s the problem with these sharp little nuggets of wisdom that seem to tell us all we need to know about anything … they may reinforce preconceived notions, but that doesn’t mean what they tell us is true.
