All depends on what you're trying to accomplish and the drivers behind the
path you wish (or need or have been mandated) to take.

Having said that, I make no claims with respect to the smartness of others
(I find I too often question that in myself to serve as a judge of others).

Nice little philosophical exchange...good to break the monotony of real life
from time to time.

Cheers to all and hope ya find the answers you seek.
