Quote of the Day

September 14, 2009

“One of the greatest threats to mankind today is that the world may be choked by an explosively pervading but well camouflaged bureaucracy.”

Norman Borlaug, the father of the “Green Revolution,” the dramatic improvement in agricultural productivity that swept the globe in the 1960s.
