"...What a real leader needs is people who disagree with him. I don’t mean the needlessly contrary, the ornery and the difficult. I mean people who share his ultimate goal, but whose job and passion it is to pick holes in his plans to get there in order to improve them..."

Always question. Always. If I have failed to thank you for your questions and opinions, accept my apologies.
