Mrs. Zubatsky's law. One day when I was a kid, our house caught on fire in Milwaukee. A large section of the wood shingle roof was burning as the fire trucks pulled up. The firemen ran into the back yard with a large hose and began assembling their metal ladders and positioning them against the house.

第三,Zubatsky夫人的定律。当我还是小孩子的时候,有一天,我们在密尔沃基的房子着火了。当消防车赶到的时候,一大片的木屋正在燃烧着。消防员拿着一个很大的水管跑进后院然后开始组装他们的金属梯子并且靠房子固定住。

Mrs. Zubatsky was our next door neighbor and, at the time, she was standing on her upstairs porch taking in the laundry. She watched anxiously as the firemen struggled with their ladders.Suddenly she leaned over the balcony and shouted down to the professional firefighters, "Forget the ladders! Just point the hose at the fire!" The firemen, to their credit, responded immediately. They dropped their ladders, pointed the hose at the fire and extinguished the blaze in about 40 seconds.

Zubatsky 夫人是我们隔壁的一个邻居,当时她正站在她家楼上的走廊收衣服。她焦急地看着消防员们努力地组装梯子。突然间她在阳台上探出身并且向那些专业的消防员大声喊:“不要用梯子了!把水管对准火焰喷!”值得称道的是,这些消防员立即响应了。他们扔掉了梯子,拿起消防水管对准火焰喷洒,结果只用了大概40秒就把大火给熄灭了。

There are two morals to this story. One, never assume that just because it's someone's job,they know how to do it. And two, don't let yourself be intimidated by professionals or their uniforms.

这个故事有两个寓意。第一,据对不要认为是别人的工作,我们就肯定知道怎么做。第二,不要让自己被别人的职业和制服吓坏了。

Growing up in Wisconsin, I never knew anyone in the movie business. I never even knew anyone who knew anyone in the movie business. That world had a mystique that made it seem unattainable to me. But, like Mrs. Zubatsky, I sat on my porch and I watched someone else doit, and I said, "I have a better idea." And like her, I seized the moment.

在威斯康辛长大,我当时不认识任何电影行业的人。我甚至不认识一个在电影行业有熟人的人。电影世界当时对我来说似乎有一种不可企及的奥秘。但是,像 Zubatsky 夫人一样,我坐在走廊上并且观察者别人在做这个事情,然后说:“我有一个更好的想法。”并且,像她一样,我把握住了机会。
