Spotted this gem on Anders site:
The tribal wisdoms of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that 'when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount'.

1. Changing riders
2. Appointing a committee to study the horse ...
It just gets better from there.
It does.[McGee's Musings]
