Quote du jour

Consider nature. Not the placid nature that Constable painted, but nature as Tennyson saw it, "red in tooth and claw." To glimpse a state of nature as Hobbes imagined it, where human life is "nasty, brutish and short," visit the Whole Foods store on River Road in Bethesda, Md. There... you will see proof of this social equation: Four Priuses plus three parking spaces equal angry anarchy.

-George Will
