   Accountability is not going away.
       LBB Performance Measures
       THECB & A&M System Accountability Measures
       Federal and State Government laws and regulations

   We cannot be all things to all people.
       Are we trying to do too much with too little?
       What are the alternatives?

   There are no prizes for predicting rain -- only for
    building arks. (NOAH Principle)
       There are no rewards for promises – only for successful
       outcomes.

   Past performance is the best predictor of future results.
