The biblical story of David and Goliath is probably the most well-known underdog story in the world.
Goliath is a giant warrior who battles a much-smaller shepherd boy, David. David shoots him with a stone and a sling right between the eyes, Goliath topples over, and David kills him.
David and Goliath is "a metaphor for improbable victories," Gladwell explained during a Ted Talk in September. "Why do we call David an underdog? Well, we call him an underdog because he's a kid, a little kid, and Goliath is this big, strong giant. We also call him an underdog because Goliath is an experienced warrior, and David is just a shepherd. But most importantly, we call him an underdog because Goliath is outfitted with all of this modern weaponry, this glittering coat of armor and a sword and a javelin and a spear, and all David has is this sling."
The first mistake history has made when retelling the tale of David and Goliath is to assume that David was a helpless boy who only had a wimpy slingshot to protect himself, Gladwell said.
That's because there were three types of warriors in ancient times: people who fought with slings and archery (David), foot soldiers who were good at up-close combat with swords (Goliath), and people on horseback.
Goliath was a foot soldier; David was a slinger. When put this way, and you note that Goliath and David were fighting from somewhat of a distance, it makes David's weapon choice seem smart. He's good at attacking with accuracy from afar.
It also makes you understand why Goliath was in trouble the moment David whipped out his sling. If David never got close to him, how could he attack and defeat him?
"Goliath is a sitting duck. He doesn't have a chance," Gladwell concludes.

Media giant Vogue Magazine is suing a small San Salvador Company called “Vogue” Corp., S.A. de C.V, who is trying to register its trademark in the United States. Vogue Magazine claims that it would cause “dilution” of their brand.
In this particular case, the court must determine whether there can be more than one trademark of the same name in different markets.
Internationally Known Attorney David Willig is the “David” taking on the “Goliath” of Vogue Magazine.

THE AGENDA IS AT:
Barbara Stone is a courageous "David" of sorts, taking on Goliath in a federal lawsuit against the Florida Bar for racketeering. She has also sued several judges for the legal abuse she has suffered via going to jail and being placed on house arrest for daring to try to save her mother's life from guardianship. In return for filing the most recent lawsuit, the judge in her mother's guardianship, Michael Genden, has issued a "show cause" order as to why she should not be held in contempt of court. The Order lists violating his Order, which prohibits Barbara from having any indirect or direct contact (ie knowing about her mother's neglect by the guardians), but is completely based upon hearsay and is thus, "no evidence." It certainly is replete with hearsay, which will not support a show cause order. The Judge is further trying to hold her in contempt for filing the Motion to Disqualify him due to his adverse interests. What a mess! Florida statutes say the Judge should disqualify himself because the 14th Amendment due process mandates it. See Caperton vs. Massey United States Supreme Court opinion (2009), which states that a judge must disqualify himself if there could be even an appearance of bias or impropriety, whether or not it subjectively exists. I think we have definitely met that standard here. The media will be at Monday's hearing, so let's cheer and encourage Barbara on as she helps write history!

Although we will continue our conversation about out-of-the-closet conservative David Mamet and his revelatory book, "The Secret Knowledge," we will spend a little time on a recent theatrical controversy. Specifically, we will tackle the question of whether a colege theatre production should make changes to a script if the local community complains about its content. I posed this question recently on Facebook and got a number of insightful and challenging comments from my listeners (and others). Join me today as we ponder a difficult issue (and David Mamet!).
So, this is going to be an interesting show. The topic for this Thursday is: Paintball celebrities. Who are they? Why are they celebrities? What does it take to become a celebrity? Can anyone join this club? Do you have to be voted in? Lots of questions. Also, should celebrities play against their fans in one on one competitions? If you had the chance to play against your favorite celebrity and you scored on them are they no longer a celebrity in your eyes? And if you did score on them, does that take way all the good things that celebrity has done?
Our Guest Co-Host will be Alexzander LeFevre, plus the regular shout outs and upcoming events.
