Quote of the Day

Critics commonly suggest that every problem is the result of some policy maker's error. But policy making often involves choosing to accept one set of likely problems over another....Historical events look different before the fact: Once one knows how a story turns out, it is easy to sift the record for telling comments and actions that can be connected to grand outcomes. But before the fact, we cannot know which potential problem or opportunity might become the hinge of fate.

- Douglas J. Feith
