    Number six sounds like what the military is trying to do with putting
    females in combat/special operations roles. I have no beef with females, >because in this instance, I wouldn’t like anyone who was bring down the >standard, be it male or female. >-------------------------------------------------------------------------- >The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed from generation to >generation, says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the
    best strategy is to dismount. However, in modern business, other strategies >are often tried with dead horses, including some of the following:

    01. Buy a bigger whip.

    02. Change riders.

    03. Threaten the horse with termination.

    04. Appoint a committee to study the horse.

    05. Arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.

    06. Lower the standards so that dead horses can be included.

    07. Reclassify the dead horse as “living impaired”.

    08. Hire an outside contractor to ride the dead horse.

    09. Harness several dead horses together to increase speed.

    10. Provide additional funding to increase the dead horse’s performance.

    11. Conduct a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the >dead horse’s performance.

    12. Declare that the dead horse carries lower overhead, and therefore >performs better than some other horses.

    13. Rewrite the expected performance parameters for all horses to
    accommodate the dead one.

    14. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.
