Concept of the Day: Comparison

No two things are exactly alike. In fact, a lot of things are totally different to most other things.

Okay, dig this everybody. Our first category today is Aesthetics.

On the one hand, you've got:

Salma Hayek

Scarlett Johansson

Gold-painted Charlize Theron

Anna Pavlova (a fellow Aquarius! If only I'd been in Moscow around 1908)


The Kelmscott Chaucer

and Ron Hainsey.

On the other hand, you've got Rod Brind'Amour.


Now that I have your attention, our second category today is Competence, which might briefly be defined as "basic fitness for one's job."

On the one hand, you've got owners who can actually run a sports franchise properly. There also exist owners who may not run their teams well, necessarily, but who meet a minimum level of non-disaster.

On the other hand, you've got these guys.

Interesting. Happy Friday, everyone!

Non-disaster is what we aim for.
