    While giants fight…

     The science or art of predicting outcomes based on known variables is far easier than doing the same with unknown variables.

    Bringing order to a population wallowing in chaos

    I do not usually follow up my prior articles, and rather prefer to wait for comments or further refinements, or even total rejection of my theme. These usually don’t come out as many people no longer read anything; some are totally unaware or uncaring about issues; and still others...
