DRY Principle

The DRY principle or “Don’t repeat yourself” states that “Every piece of knowledge must have a single, unambiguous, authoritative representation within a system.”   Great principle, but I have been known to take this too far.  Sometimes you need to balance your KISS with you DRY to keep it simple stupid.  Just repeat the code if it avoids unnecessary complexity.
