A couple of weeks ago a friend and I were driving down a two-lane road and spent several red lights stuck behind the same SUV. It had a vanity plate that read “LSUTIGAH.” As an alum who knows there’s no place like Tiger stadium on a Saturday night, I instantly recognized this as “LSU Tiger.” At the fourth or fifth red light, however, my Yankee friend said, “Gee, what do you suppose that license plate says? Luh-SOO-tig-guh?”
This was a funny story to repeat to my husband, also an LSU fan. But it made me think for a second about the value of having people with lots of different experience, education, and “skill sets” on hand to solve any important problem.
