Napoleon was supposed to have once explained to an inquirer, "There are four types of soldiers. The first are the dumb and lazy. These I make my infantrymen. The second are the smart and energetic. These I make my field commanders. The third type are the smart and lazy. These I make my generals."
The inquirer, then replied, "That's just three types. What of the dumb and energetic?"
Napoleon, without skipping a beat replied, "I have them shot."
I often think of this now when I read blogs.
