Disasters (i.e. mistakes) happen.
It is important to learn from them
so we don’t repeat
the same mistakes.

The time for learning,
however,
is AFTER the fires have been put out
(or in BP’s case,
after the oil leaks have been plugged).

During a disaster,
ALL resources should be allocated
toward fixing that disaster.
That’s it.

You tell auditors to come back later.
You let environment groups
and government driven witch hunts
know that you’ll happily deal with them
after you’ve stopped the bleeding.

Fix the current disaster first.
Talk about how to prevent
the next disaster
later.
