Check List

Wednesday, July 28th 2010

Here's a check list:

  • it costs a lot to create?
  • it costs a lot to maintain?
  • politically difficult to stop maintaining it?
  • the cost is well beyond what it is worth?
  • it diverts attention from something else more important?

If the answer is yes to those questions, then you have ...

A White Herring!

That's what you get if you cross a red herring and a white elephant.
