Quote of the Day

"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear -- kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor -- with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil ... to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it by furnishing the exhorbitant funds demanded. Yet, in retrospect, these disasters seem never to have happened, seem never to have been quite real."
-- General Douglas MacArthur, 1957 (near the end of his life)
