Serendipity Too?

…or more coincidence.

The thing about being an analyst is that you start looking for patterns, so you may see things as connected, that aren’t actually. You don’t quit because you will also stumble across patterns that others missed, which is why you need to have more than one person review the facts.

This seems to be a time for dying directors, and Sydney Pollack just passed away this week. His last project was the HBO movie on the Florida 2000 election, Recount, but his illness forced him to withdraw from the directing of the film, and retain only executive producer credit.

More than three decades ago he directed the film, Three Days of the Condor, about a CIA rogue operation that came apart. In the last scene the hero is hoping to get clear of assassination attempts by revealing what he knows to the New York Times, but the corrupt CIA official asks him “How do you know they’ll print it?”

This was the Watergate era, so everyone smugly assumed, of course they’ll print it.

[Editor: This the beginning of an action sequence as Excise learned that two bodies cannot occupy the same space at the same time. He was attempting to jump down to the top of a small bookcase to the right while Sox was already airborne for the same landing site. He learned that Sox has more mass. Fortunately for Sox, the collision with Excise prevented him from sliding off the top of the bookcase, the normal result when he jumps up there. Only dignity was injured in this post.]
