Talent Versus Time
Friday’s Dilbert strip is so appropriate to Rhode Island’s predicaments (especially from our unique perspective) that I’ve emailed Scott Adams about making a t-shirt of it.
In context of the particular bit of pith from Dilbert’s garbage man, keep an eye out for provisions in the law and in contracts that seek to expand the time of those who run the state (in one capacity or another) and that make it more time-consuming for we regular folk to have a say.
A commenter has corrected me that the other character in the strip is Dilbert’s garbage man, not his neighbor, as I had originally guessed, and upon closer inspection, I see that his is opening the garbage can in the first frame and grabbing the bag in the second. Perhaps it was the absence of a truck that threw me off initially.
