I'm always fascinated by the folks who seem to somehow be prescient enough to know how much training or skill someone else will need to deal with whatever problems he'll face in his life. Perhaps those with such gifts should be playing the Lotto or betting on horse races.

I can, and will, decide how much training I will get. But since even I can't know how much I'll need, how can someone else know? Even even a cop will lose sometimes, suggesting that he did have the training or skills he need to deal with the problem that was his undoing.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
