It's official -- the Dog Days of summer are here. It is hotter than blazes here in Colorado (and I imagine just about everywhere else). So I thought a bit of cool trivia was needed. Who knows the origin of Dog Days? If you do, post a comment with the information. If no one posts a definition, I'll post an "official" one in a few days -- after I recover from heat stroke.

It got me to thinking about the notion that there may be times when we destroy the usability of data by fixing it up too much...

The "powers that be" most definitely needed an injection of BI analytics before they decided on how to dispose of a dead whale...
