Planning? Perhaps.


Wally Bock on the pros and cons of planning : It depends on what you mean by planning. If you mean making detailed, projections of 316 key variables by month over the next twelve years, well, you've got too much time on your hands. But if you mean taking a little time to plan your day or week or month so that you work more efficiently, then planning is a good thing indeed. It depends on how far out you're planning.

First Paragraph


I got away from the Grand Jury a little after four, and then sneaked up the back stairs to Fenweather's office. Fenweather, the D.A., was a man with severe, chiseled features and the gray temples women love. He played with a pen on his desk and said, "I think they believed you. They might even indict Manny Tinnen for the Shannon kill this afternoon. If they do, then is the time you begin to watch your step." - From Finger Man by Raymond Chandler


The Power Broker


The story was that he held court in a booth at the back of a modest Mexican food restaurant where he would sip coffee, read the newspapers, and occasionally dispatch a messenger on an errand or two. If you went to see him for a favor, he would act perplexed. "I I don't know why you came to me," he'd say. "I I really have no influence in such matters." Some more coffee and conversation later, he would mention, "I know of a man who might be able to help you."
