"Then it doesn't matter which way you walk," said the Cat.

Just a few years ago there was a flight of one of the major airlines from New York to Miami. The crew began to make preparations for landing when they noticed that the light, which indicates that the landing gear was down, did not come on.

The Captain instructed the Engineer to get a new bulb, and he began to work on the light trying to get it to come on. The Co-pilot who was supposed to be landing the plane, also got pre-occupied with this little light and he and the captain together began to thump and to pound on the light trying to get it to come on. Well, in the meantime, no one thought to abort the landing or to manually lower the landing gear.

While that crew was focusing in on a faulty light bulb that plane crashed into the Everglades and over one hundred people lost their lives.

He apologizes profusely, says "You're right, I'm so sorry!" and pulls out a pad of paper and a pen. He then jots notes as I'm telling him about myself and whatnot. I finally ask him what he's doing and he says "Oh, I'm writing down things I want to tell you when it's my turn to talk again."
