Now to maintenance of extrusion lines. Some of you are old enough to remember Bert Lance, Jimmy Carter’s banker friend and budget director, who popularized the expression, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The folksy, ungrammatical structure appealed to the anti-intellectual sentiment popular at the time.
