During that time, I visited my MTU accounting professor, Sam Tidwell, in Copper Harbor, Michigan a couple of times to get his input on my idea and to find out why MTU lacked any meaningful government accounting classes.
His position was that my idea would never fly simply because there were too many politicians, too many different and self-serving agendas, and no one was interested in providing an accurate accounting of our tax dollars.
When I mentioned that I planned on pursuing this idea, his parting words, in his inimitable Mississippi drawl, were "Fisha, if you go down that road, you will find that you have a Tiga by the tail.
I didn't believe him at the time.
But, as usual, Sam was right.
