A good leader of any organization always says to bring me the bad news first so we can see if adjustments or responses can be made. However, in an autocracy nobody delivers bad news because the messenger gets blamed. There was a joke about the way Putin was told about the sinking of his warship, the greatest military naval disaster since WWII, he was told it had been converted into a submarine.
I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter weekend with their family and friends celebrating the resurrection of Christ. Katy and I enjoyed making our annual bunny cake and dyeing Easter eggs on Saturday night.
Gov. Greg Abbott halted the state’s aggressive truck inspection at all Texas border crossings after days of bipartisan criticism over the extended delays of goods entering the United States.
The turning point of WWII in Europe occurred at the gates of Stalingrad in Russia. The German armies led by Field Marshall Frederick Von Paulus begged Hitler for permission to retreat, set up a defensive perimeter and hold onto the vast territories it had conquered. Hitler refused and doubled down on his strategy of moving forward. In the terrible winter the armies were forced to surrender, and 91,000 men marched off into Russian captivity with only 6,000 ever coming home.
Katy and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend. I just had to work on editing some pictures. It was good to slow down for a little bit this weekend, because it is going to be busy from now on until the end of the County Show in June.
