Let's start with this; almost everyone makes a great Monday morning quarterback. This morning i went for coffee with a bunch of long-timers from the Bell fitness center. I'm not big on socializing, but one of the guys asked me to come and say a few words. I took the opportunity to pitch both the museum and SCHOA's end of the year Community Reference Guide. As i was talking with people, most folks feel Sun City is as about as good as it gets. Hard to argue there's better places to live, but i can argue we could be so much better than we are. That's where the Monday morning q-back thing comes in. Think not? Ask yourself; if back in 1999 when the PIF was passed, had you told them by 2040, they would have 250 million dollars to spend, would they have been more judicious? Do you think someone would have put together a strategic, comprehensive plan on what to do and when? Anyone with a half a brain would answer in the affirmative. Anyone with any insight would have drooled over the prospect of doing it right, rather than just doing it. It's easy to spend money, it's far more difficult to spend it wisely. The easy thing to do is throw out what they could have/should have done, and frame it in the present tense. What can we do knowing we have 150 million dollars over the next 20 years? See, this isn't that hard. What really matters is can we learn from our stupid the first 20 years? Or, are we too stubborn to admit we didn't do it as good as we could have. Assessing blame is wasted energy; learning from our mistakes is an entirely different proposition. Sadly, i suspect too many of those who held key positions will turn a blind eye and argue, everything thing they did was perfect. The question for each of you is simple; was it?
