If the public will not pay to see them, the businesses that profit from keeping animals captive will not be able to continue.
I'd really like to get the girl, shoot the gun, drive the car, have fun. I even have these kind of action dreams, where I'm the action guy.
When I got to GM they were using a matrix method of management which means everybody has more than one boss. I first heard about that system many years ago. It's supposed to help with collaboration, but my assessment is that it's pretty hard to get geared for action that way.
Edward Whitacre, Jr.

In constructing the plot and working it out with the proper diction, the poet should place the scene, as far as possible, before his eyes.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
