Level 5

After seeing Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer last night, I coincidentally found this quote in Good to Great:

Level 5 leaders are a study in duality: modest and willful, humble and fearless. To quickly grasp this concept, think of United States President Abraham Lincoln (one of the few Level 5 presidents in United States history), who never let his ego get in the way of his primary ambition for the larger cause of an enduring great nation.

I just got this really brusque email from Barack Obama demanding at least $3. It sort of feels like a neg - do they think I'm going to give them money if they are jerks about it? I mean, being nice, and then begging didn't work, so let's try demanding!

From: Barack Obama
Subject: Hey

Wangston --

I need you with me on this one.

Tonight's deadline is our biggest yet, and I need everyone
pitching in.

Give $3 or whatever you can:


Let's go,

I'm working on a side-project to build the perfect forum for political (and other) debates.

It's called Gruff and the goal is to build a troll-resistant (or, really, troll-ignoring) site that allows people with opinions to build a canonical list of arguments around a specific debate and come to a consensus around the reliability of each argument.

No on 8

Not that anyone reading this would dare vote yes, but just in case... please vote no on 8, or consider yourself a hateful jerk. And don't come back here again. ever.
