So a few random thoughs:

It is the old, "Don't Just DO Something, Stand There" approach that I

Or the Vulcan concept of logic and emotional control. Or other approaches
about objectivity and perspective. I've seen similar dialog on Freeze

"nothing." "We don't pay people to think around here, you know!"

I am reminded of President John's quote, at the senior management planning
retreat, when we were talking about ideas from employees and he said,

"That's like asking the vegetables how to design a refrigerator."

interesting times,
