The difference between reason and excuse.

Last night. doing dishes, my wife's favorite coffee cup slipped out of my hands and broke as it hit the sink. As an engineer, why did that happen? Hands were soapy, cup was soapy, but it was in my hands and slipped. I am not denying that it is not my fault that the cup broke, after all my hands were the only ones on the cup. I'm an engineer. this is how we think. On the other hand, my wife thinks that I am just making an excuse as to why I broke her cup. This is exactly where we stand today. Do you want to listen to reason or do you want to listen to an excuse. There is no reason for any actions coming out of the White House, only excuses.

On Thursday, state officials finally decided to remove the “Into the Wild” bus from the Alaskan wild.
