The pages that follow contain the text of the May 13, 1999 after-dinner speech delivered by Larry Krakauer at the Kronos Worldwide Sales and Service Conference ("WWSSC") in St. Louis, Missouri.
Any link in the text is a footnote, which will open a small separate window when clicked. When done with the footnote, click the link at the bottom which reads "Click here when done with footnote", or click the "X" in the upper right of the footnote window. CAUTION: If you don't close a footnote, nothing will happen if you click on the footnote link a second time, because the footnote window is already open. If it is hidden under another window, it will not be brought to the front.
