I've returned from my travels, so perhaps the postings will seem somewhat fresher for a bit.
One of the pre-fab postings you read last week, dear patient reader, involved my three new calendars for 2015.
Allow me now to cast my mind back nostalgically at 2014 as it fades into the rear view mirror, and comment on my day-to-day calendar for that year, which involved Dilbert cartoons.
On November 27th, this dresser-top calendar illustrated a theme dear to my heart. In the first panel, pointy-haired boss, standing behind Dilbert (who appears to be working on a spreadsheet at his desk) says, "Someone sent me another anonymous email with a link to the article about the world's worst bosses."
In the second panel, boss clearly now has Dilbert's attention, and he continues: "I get one of those emails every time I leave your cubicle. Did you think I wouldn't notice the Correlation?"
Then he walks away, and we see Wally, in the next cubicle, smiling to himself. Above Wally's head and its guilty smirk is a thought balloon, "Correlation does not imply causation."
Very true. And a good insight with which to say goodbye to my daily doses of dresser-posed Dilberts.
