Strother Martin was right, when in the movie Cool Hand Luke, What we have here is a failure to communicate. Nothing says that more than the lack of inflection or tone of e-mails. How many times has the true meaning of your e-mails been lost by lack of a human facial expression or tone of voice?
That happened this week between myself and The Boss at Alligator Records.
If we mere citizens can have this problem, imagine the phenomenon on a geopolitical level. The Prez can barely make himself understood when ordering a grilled cheese sandwich, then wonders why the people of his country gasp at a statement shifting the oness of the removal of our military presnce in Iraq to "future presidents".
