Quote of the Day

Well, two actually, from one of my favorite columnists, Thomas Sowell:

"Most of the problems of this country are not nearly as bad as the "solutions" -- especially the solutions that politicians come up with during election years.

Some people actually think that televising Congress gives us information. What it really does is give politicians millions of dollars worth of free advertising, while they play charades on camera to fool the rest of us."

Maggie,

This seems simple reinforcement for what Thomas Paine said many years ago, "...government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."
