The Wisdom of Committees

Twice a year I run in local relay road races. The next is the Brookings Marathon. We usually have goofy team names, like "Junta," "Andante," "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes," (one of my favorites), "And Hutch," "Starsky" (we had two teams for that race), or "Frank & Beans." We never use the same name twice.

This year, there was no broad agreement, so we just combined every idea we had. We are "Automated External Defibrillator and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Mullet."
