The man who made his name telling the entire beef industry they don't know how to raise cattle is once again upset over "Pharo Bashing" in his most recent newsletter.
This happens about once a year or so when people who aren't on his e-mail list watch his sales on RFD and wonder if they woke up in the Twilight Zone. The conversation typically goes something like my dad calling and saying "JEFF, turn on RFD, you won't believe what these bulls look like and what they are selling for" to which I reply "oh, time flies, I forgot the Pharo sale was today".
It's always good for a bit of a laugh when he includes this in his newsletter because of the lack of self awareness it requires. The best part had to be this quote...
Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss other people.
What was funny about it? He spent the previous three paragraphs calling people "afraid of change", "filled with hatred and anger", "jealous", and "filled with envy".
To be clear, I really have nothing against the man, I've actually helped them spot a domain name issue one time when their webmaster got lazy and didn't have it on auto-renew. You haven't seen me bash Kit's philosophies on here because they do make quite a bit of sense in the right environment. I'll say that I know a lot of people that are "low input" and they'll laugh at you if you said a $5,000 bull was low input.What doesn't make sense is for somebody who has made a name for himself criticising everything other than what he does to have such an amazingly thin skin.
