The iTV Doctor Is In! The Canoe Story, Chapter Two: The Salesman

Dear Readers:

I have a friend who is a skydiver. And while I occasionally doubt her sanity for engaging in such a risky pursuit, she tells me that virtually all skydiving deaths are caused by a cascading series of bad decisions. In skydiving you can survive one bad decision: failing to check and properly calculate wind speeds and directions. You might even survive a second bad decision: going ahead with your fancy maneuvers, even though the wind had changed. Your third bad decision can kill you: believing you can hit the original landing zone, even as you drift into the power line.
