Systemic Failures—Dull Men abhor them


Dear DMC

Dull Men like systems to work. And we like to connect the dots to make them work. Connecting the dots is a satisfying thing to do. And it can save lives, especially when a trail of dots relate to a terrorist.

A set of dots and a likely connector are the dots the terrorist left at the airports and airline check-in staff at Lagos and Amsterdam . Shouldn’t staff at KLM in Lagos and at Northwest Airlines in Amsterdam become concerned about a passenger buying a one-way ticket for cash and checked no bags? And had selected a seat located right over one of the plane’s fuel tanks, it’s largest fuel tank?
