Colbert would have us believe this is a bad thing. Hey may be right.

I’m not convinced.

In the past several months I’ve watched acquaintances, friends, and extremely close friends lose their jobs as organizations collapse around them. The unifying theme? My gut warned me well in advance.

In some cases, I communicated my gut’s outlook, though not as strongly as I might have.

You can’t control others, nor does it makes sense to abuse their choices for the ‘privilege’ of saying “I told you so”.

Still, I resolve to improve translating my guts feelings into an effective argument. Now more than ever we should be improving and defending the lives of friends.
