Here's Blog Quote #626...
When reporters asked this astronaut what he thought about as he sat atop the Redstone Rocket, waiting for liftoff, the reply was ...
"The fact that every part of this ship was built by the low bidder..."
-Alan Shepard, NASA astronaut-
Something to think about, the next time you are purchasing anything that has significance. There is an old saying that is more true than false...'Price. Quality. Service. Pick any 2 of 3 you like.'
Sure, no one liked to be had or ripped off. Of course, we all want the best deal. I wonder how many times the 'best deal' up front was largely determined by price-- and later wished upon, that it was never purchased.
Food for thought...
That's my view...what say you?
