I heard a caller make the following analogy this morning on the radio and I thought it was amusing enough to pass along. You've got a packed field of twenty candidates, including one filly. The filly runs an exceptional race and appears to be in control. But then, the one from the outside gate, aptly nicknamed "Big Brown," comes from out of nowhere to beat the filly to the finish line. And immediately the powers that be have the filly put down. Sound familiar?
