VA, or the Titanic?
Author: TriSec    Date: 05/22/2018 09:57:21

Good Morning.

We've all been in a situation where there's a leadership vacuum. Whether it's personal, professional, or organizational, it's possible for said group to coast along for some time without real leadership, sometimes even for months or years.

Monday Stub
Author: Raine    Date: 05/14/2018 13:06:56

There is too much going on this morning. Between Jerusalem, China and more Avennatti news getting ready to break (read the tweets from the last 24 hours), I can't figure anything out.

Positivity to cleanse the week
Author: TriSec    Date: 05/12/2018 10:05:27
