Beautifully enunciated. The first cornerstone laid for a towering skyscraper determines every downstream window view. Reminds me of working my way through school on a construction crew as a masonry tender. When the scaffolding was hastily assembled without leveling - by the time we got up 4 stories the 3 degree initial yaw that was previously unnoticeable - became a life threatening situation. When pallets of new cement blocks were laid on - everything swayed and the masons stated that they were going to live by holding onto the wall, and that the "college boy" standing a half level higher feeding them block was a goner... I did internally note that the recently laid blocks with still-wet mortar might not hold as desired.
Excellent article, Louis! This makes me wonder about some of the meetings I've been involved in over the years. I've always gone into them with the idea that I can contribute suggestions for improvement, if I see any needed improvements. But perhaps I was considered nothing more than a building inspector, just there to see if anything might kill someone.
