    Or, as the economic model was described as far back as the 1890s, well before “trickle down,” the “Horse and Sparrow” model.

    (Sigh.) Another example of someone who equates cynicism with wisdom.

    As my finance professor once explained, “LLC” is the acronym of a Latin phrase which translates as “When creditors come knocking, no one’s at home.”(He was joking, but it’s all too true.)

    It’s just one of those things that people do; if you do it no one much cares, but if you don’t you’ll get no end of grief.

    I guess I was thinking whatever proto-chicken traits remained automatically became identified as those of the modern chicken.

    OK … now, hear me out … There actually is an answer to the “Which came first – the chicken or the egg?” controversy.

    Some eons ago, the evolution of birds produced animals that were proto-chickens – birds that almost, but not quite, had the characteristics of modern chickens. Two proto-chickens mated and the embryo inside the egg which was laid by the female proto-chicken experienced one or more genetic mutations. When hatched, the first modern chicken emerged. This first modern chicken then mated with other proto-chickens, with the characteristics of the modern chicken being the dominant traits. Over time the proto-chicken traits faded away from the chicken species to where only modern chicken traits remained.

    So, obviously it was the egg which came first.
