My thought for today is inspired by DVOA. God bless it.

Mature organizations need good institutions to safeguard what is good and noble; to inculcate in the youth values and practices which allow the wisdom of the past to be cherished and used as the foundation for greater glory. Good people can make a difference, too, but should matter less as the organization matures.

DVOA has some good, well-meaning people. It doesn't have institutions and it killed the goose.

If it were a stock, I would not hold it. If it were a country... well perhaps Gibbon would have something to say.
