Always be closing

I just thought I'd slide by today with a link to a famous rant. The one delivered by Alec Baldwin in the movie Glengarry Glen Ross.

Here's the YouTube let's talk about something important.

He did a North Pole version of this character in a Yuletime Saturday Night Live skit once.

Instead of "put that coffee down" it was "put that cocoa down" and so forth.

If you have the time watch them both.

Gotta love the motivational use of the alphabet. ABC = Always be closin'.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
