"We Have Met The Enemy and He is Us."

That's Pogo's most famous quote, circa 1971. Walt Kelly used it to illustrate a point on pollution. Maybe we've been reading the comics way too long, but when MVB saw this recent Dilbert panel in the Miami Herald's Business Monday, it brought back memories of Kelly's genius. Scott Adams is in many ways our Walt Kelly of today. Instead of a universe populated by opossums and critters in the Okefenokee Swamp making astute, sometimes uncomfortable observations on the human condition, Adams does it today from the spirit-killing confines of the office cubicle. So, when we saw this, we had to ask, is this us? A bunch of technology adapting, bandwidth hogging egotists who know how to type?
