Quote of the Day:Letting Things Break Down




From Bob Herbert, Via the New York Times:
The idea that the nation had all but stopped investing in its infrastructure, and that officials in Washington have ignored the crucial role of job creation as the cornerstone of a thriving economy is beyond mind-boggling. It’s impossible to understand.
Impossible, that is, until you realize that bandits don’t waste time repairing a building that they’re looting.


This ends the quote of the day, for those of you who have attention spans long enough to read two short paragraphs.
