M&M’s and attention to detail

The rock band Van Halen used to insist that there be no brown M&M’s in the bowls of M&M’s backstage. They weren’t just making outrageous demands to wield power, but they wanted to insure a level of attention to detail by the people behind the scenes, so that nothing actually important would get overlooked.

Just sayin’ for me it’s always a red flag when some group or other wants me for something, then can’t even get my byline right, dropping the initial as if it didn’t matter. It always means other details are being sloppily attended to, as well.
