We destroy the beauty of the countryside because the un-appropriated splendors of nature have no economic value. We are capable of shutting off the sun and the stars because they do not pay a dividend. — John Maynard Keynes
And finally, from Glib
I have arrived, you lucky dogs!
Despite all you may have heard about me, I am a very sensible person and a MAJOR contributor to all the products that come from the so-called "Geoffrey Fox Productions." If you're looking for fluency over stodginess, airiness over weighty ponderings, a happy skipping through phrases rather than a muddled wade through verbiage, feel free to e-mail me to inquire of rates. You want references? Boy, have I got references! Practically every important writer you've ever heard of uses Glib! A sampling of names available upon request.
