These were named for a former manager of mine who would often say things like, "If it's something we've got to get done, we've got to get it done."

To which we wanted to reply, "When you're right, you're right."

(One of his underlings told us "Done, to Mike_Ballestra, means done.")

So . . . I guess you could say that the definition of a Ballestraism is a saying that says what it says by saying what it says in the way it says it.

I will close by simply saying, "Enough is enough!"
