"We had been hoping that there was somebody who knew what everybody was doing — but you're saying that that's not true!" a colleague (LI) groaned recently. We have a devout faith in authority. We want to believe in parental figures, who know everything, who see the whole plan, and who will take care of us. We yearn to glimpse omniscient powers behind the curtains of uncertainty. Sorry! — they're out to lunch, or they never signed on for the job. We're the best there is. We had better get used to it, and do our best in turn to help each other when the surf gets rough.
