      The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to
      generation, says that, "When you discover that you are riding a dead
      horse, the best strategy is to dismount."

      However, in government, education and in corporate America, more
      advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

      1. Buying a stronger whip
      2. Changing riders
      3. Appointing a committee to study the horse
      4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride
      horses
      5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be more productive
      6. Reclassifying the dead horse as "living-impaired"
      7. Hiring outside contractors to lift the dead horse and move its legs
      8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed
      9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase dead
      horse's performance
      10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve
      the dead horse's performance
      11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is
      less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes
      substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than do some
      other horses
      12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses
      13. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position
