Lord Kelvin’s New Clothes and Security Metrics

I have the highest regard for Lord Kelvin. After all, I spent six years studying at the University of Glasgow, which is adjacent to Kelvingrove Park with its imposing statue of Lord Kelvin.

I also have high regard for the Scots, despite my being branded (as are all foreigners) a Sassenach, or Lowlander, by them. They are a canny, dour, opinionated bunch, which has contributed mightily to the world. But, they are not always right (especially when they argue that they are).
