This is surely what I'm going to do next time, though.

"What you don’t do is turn the Dunning Kruger around on them and start telling them that they’re really going to need pure red lines if they want to maximize their verticals and strategize their synergies. You don’t tell them that kitten lines were so 2011. You don’t interrupt Chamberlain when he says “any fool can criticize” to say that you’re okay with the clients’ criticism and how he dare he call them fools. You don’t ask Chamberlain, if his title is “project manager,” why can’t he “manage” to define a clear spec."

Cash only but delicious. Had a great omelet and the home fries have onions in them. Rye toast... What more can you ask for?

Does this really surprise anyone?  This has been known for long time.  See also: Cyrano de Bergerac  and how easily Roxanne was swayed by Christian de Neuvillette.

I'm only surprised that height wasn't considered in addition to attractiveness.

Today I learned:  Muhammad Ali once talked a suicidal man off a ledge.  Talk about right place, right time.

Just signed a new lease for a townhouse in Squirrel Hill. The office staff has been very polite and largely efficient. Got the lease sorted out before I got to town and everything went very smoothly. The townhouse is very nice, clean, and the all-in-all very nice.
