Didn't the head of Honda say something similar? "Out of a hundred decisions only one was correct" who’s good at research?

Rick Z, Ashdown, AR

That's good because I sure make a lot of misteaks!

Mike, Norwalk

A major measuring stick here would be "what" was done wrong or "what" mistakes were made. If a life is spent enslaving, murdering and other heinous crimes doing nothing would have been much better.

Don Lee, Reno

Shaw the not so liberty-loving socialist claims busybodies interfering in the lives of others is honorable. I wouldn't trade one anarchist living in the swamps of Lousiana for 1,000 of his so-called honorable men who cause damage on humankind.
