When you see a baby bird in the middle of the road, you can be pretty certain it isn’t going to end well. Yes, WC chased it out of the middle of the road, but in the rearview mirror, it ran right back out after WC had passed. After all, from the bird’s point of view, what could possibly go wrong?
In that sense, it’s no different than the attitude of New York City disaster planners, developers of Alberta’s oil shale, or Governor Sean “Captain Zero” Parnell. It all looks good from where they stand.
