You can accept some level of risk if there is a measurable ceiling. How much time you want to give yourself when you break out is up to you. 500rvr you have zero options and therefore toolish.

Huh? Flying IMC at 10,000' with a ceiling at 4,000' over flatlands gives you plenty of time to pick that landing spot. The lower the ceiling gets, the higher the risk level.

No offense but you obviously have never landed 600 to 300 rvr before.
I think he's a Doctor.

Hold his beer, he can come up with a Bonanza before it gets warm.

Yes but a 1000' ceiling doesn't give you much time unless you are in the Great Plains. I don't think he should be flying at 500 rvr. That's just stupid

I have heard and can verify Captain George's PA from another flight. Toolish indeed.

There’s a video of him floating around somewhere. “I’ve flown all the biggest jets at Delta which makes me extremely qualified....”
