Wherein the "but that's just the way it's done" defense is busted into nothing.

Good reading - go take a look.
(Also, this is fair warning to those of you who started reading this blog in the last month or so - the flash-fiction-a-day thing is not normal for me. I normally post a flash fiction a week, and the rest ranges over a wide slew of topics. We'll probably be back to a more normal style of posting in the next week or two.)
