I don’t normally do “Quotes of the day” or anything like that…and I realize that I’m exceeding my recommended daily blogging allowance…but this one was just too good not to reprint:

Expecting the government to do a good job of running a transport network or an education system is like expecting a a hammer to do a good job of tightening screws. It doesn’t matter how good your hammer is, or how skilled the hand that wields it, you’ve simply got the wrong tool for the job.
–Simon Clark

Simon Clark being (of course), author of the blog From the Barrel of a Gun, in a post regarding the newly formed Libertarian Party of the United Kingdom.

I’m definitely putting that one in my “memorable quotes” file.
