Brian Fantana : They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time, it works every time.

Some how the moustached Don Juan of the West Coast TV News scene, was undermined by the formidable Veronica Corningstone. She worked out that Ron would spit out whatever the teleprompter read. Instead of his iconic sign off, 'you stay classy', he dropped an 'F' bomb and lost his job and the good people of San Diego.

It was a power play. It was Man v. Woman, but it wasn't a fair fight. Woman had brains and ambition. Man was the incumbent, with a moustache and weapon grade after shave. Ron had an incredible cachet of cologne. Sex Panther was the leader of the claw. There was an inference that cologne had certain power. Spanish fly power, power to seduce. Brian's proclamation of the power of cologne, highlights that statistics are trotted out as evidentiary support for any claim.

Did you know that 73.6% of all statistics are made up?

My point is that the daily ritual of numbers and statistics is about as relevant as a red velvet smoking jacket on a Parisian cat walk. Dictator Dan's 'round the grounds' score update is a waste of time. I would prefer he invested that time in a resignation speech.

His plan looks like an undergraduate university project. No-one involved with the authoring has the experience or qualification to produce such a plan. The nuclear approach to eradicating the virus is going to have fallout. Unfortunately, Dictator Dan has the code and pressed the red button.

Politicians and Weathermen are the only two professions wrong nearly 97.76% of the time.

Sure, that makes sense.
