While everyone would agree that speed matters most in a crisis, it seems precision is important before the crisis so I think it is not so simple.
The movie "Star Trek: Into Darkness" (out this weekend) was so excellent. Especially if you're a government worker I would highly, highly recommend this movie. The back and forth between Kirk and Spock exactly illustrates the conflict. We were ALL clapping at the end.
Mark, your point about appropriate expectations is well taken.
Sometimes a movie can get a point across in a way that all the blog posts and comments in the world can't.
