As we were closing down the Redwood City store yesterday, my co-worker Jeff Garneau said to me:
"Life isn't black or white; it's complex, and nuanced, and difficult to understand. Not everything is instantly clear. The same goes for wine or whisky. But there's no doubt that as a society we've gravitated towards the mindset that anyone who tries to sell you on complexity is trying to pull one over on you, which is why there's an insistence to simplify things."
I thought that was a brilliant statement.
