I’ve lost count of how many times in the past couple of weeks I’ve heard someone say a variation on the phrase “don’t drink the Kool-Aid” (meaning don’t get pulled in by them or become one of them, don’t fall for the lies, don’t sell-out, a’la Jim Jones’ tribe). What I see is that just about everyone–every group, every team, every for-hire troup is pouring the Kool-Aid and wants everyone else to drink their’s. It’s one big sea of Kool-Aid out there. Here’s my thought: If someone tells you not to drink someone else’s Kool-Aid what they are really saying is”Here, drink MY Kool-Aid instead.” Think of that next time you call forth the Kool-Aid Man. Oh, Yeah!
