The G-20 is a lot like Death

The approach to the G-20 was a lot like Death.

It's unavoidale, it's going to happen, and there's uncertainty — except for those people who are absolutely certain, and even among that population there's conflicting views. They can't all be right. Somebody must have the wrong expectation. It's not personal.

It could be a big bad thing; it might be a pleasant, nice thing. Everybody's got their own theory, ranging from Cassandra to Pangloss. You don't get to see what it's going to be until you put some skin in the game and wait for The Time.

The G-20 has come and gone. Turns out it was not a disaster. It was probably a good thing for the city. An 8 out of 10.

My compliments to the organizers, and to all the people who stayed home.
