Here is a younger, much skinnier Andy saying pretty much the same things I’m saying today…and predicting the troubles that you see unfolding before your eyes:
If we had cut the budget by 7% per year as I’d proposed back then, we’d be in good shape today. Now I’m afraid it’s too late for gradual cutting.
I really, really hope I’m wrong about what’s about to smack us upside the head.
I’ve never so badly wanted to be wrong.
