The Right To Be Wrong
The head promoter wrote the Foundation office. He said he wished he'd paid some
attention to A.A. experience. Then he did something else that was to become an A.A.
classic. It all went on a little card about golf-score size. The cover read: “Middleton
Group #1. Rule #62.” Once the card was unfolded, a single pungent sentence leaped
to the eye: “Don't take yourself too damn seriously.” Thus it was that under Tradition
Four an A.A. group had exercised its right to be wrong.
