The Difference between the Arks
Since the following comment at TJIC has attracted favorable attention, it might be worth repeating here:
Let’s see… If you pay someone from the A ark to design a nuclear power plant, you will get it. If you pay someone from the C ark to build a nuclear power plant, you will get it. If you pay someone from the B ark to make a movie that makes sense about a nuclear power plant, you will get The China Syndrome instead of something that makes sense.
On the other hand…
The B-Ark metaphor might have inspired the following piece of self congratulation discussed at View from the Porch:
The chief difference: public employees are doing necessary work while private employees are trying to convince use of what brand of pickles to buy.
So … maybe we should use B-Ark allusions with some restraint.
