Quote of the Day - 'People'

"I believe people are well-intentioned. But I have great respect for the corrosive influence of bias, systematic distortion of thought, the power of rationalization, the guises of self-interest, and the inevitability of unintended consequences."
—Michael Crichton, "Author's Message," in State of Fear, p. 571

And this is the "doctor" who disses Global Warming in the same book with carefully selected "facts"!

I'm taking any'thing' any'body' says with a "grain of Mustard seed" from now on!

I do like his novels though...remember...they are 'fiction'.

I'm in 'absolute' agreement with you.

By the way, John. I just joined http://bfreeworld.blogspot.com/\ and noticed you haven't posted anything lately.

How about updating it with some of your fantastic poetry and poet trees?
