**Saving the Tootsie Rolls.** I used to work with someone who would accuse people of the following: *"The store is burning down, and you're trying to **save the Tootsie Rolls**."* The proposed solution -- saving the Tootsie Rolls -- which is, in a sense, valid,  clearly targets "one of many problems in an entity plagued by so many problems as to render the individual solution unimportant." Unfortunately, I can't find any references for this piece of wisdom, but I have remembered and relied upon it for many years.
