The Tipping Point

What is the tipping point?   When your book, poem, painting, sculpture, name, or whatever gains notoriety, that’s the tipping point.  I read a book called “The Tipping Point” several years ago.  The writer used Paul Revere and William Dawes to get his point across.  Everyone knows who Paul Revere was, but what about William Dawes?  Both Revere and Dawes warned that the British were coming.  Supposedly, Revere had more connections.  (It’s often who you know, not what you know.)  Not only that but “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere” sounds better than “The Midnight Ride of William Dawes.”

How does one reach the tipping point?  I don’t know, but when I find out, I’ll pass it on.
