Years ago I was walking past a marketing guy's cube, and on his cube
wall he had Minard's famous "Napolean's March" graph that Tufte so
admired.  I asked him if he had read Tufte's book "The Visual Display
of Quantitative Information" (in which the graph appears).  He replied
that no he hadn't read Tufte's book -- he'd gotten that graph from a
power-point-driven lecture in some MBA class or other.
