Quote of the day

Lucy Kellaway, in a humorous discussion in the Financial Times on dumb questions:
If a senior person asks a dumb question the drill is that everyone pretends not to notice. I once sat next to Prince Philip at a lunch and he asked lots of hair-raisingly dumb questions. One of the advantages of being married to the Queen (or even being the Queen) is that you can ask as many of those as you like.
It turns out that what they always tell you "no question is ever dumb," is rarely correct. Who knew...
