Quote of the Day

Mr. Jobs's contribution to the world is Apple and its products, along with Pixar and his other enterprises, his 338 patented inventions -- his work -- not some Steve Jobs Memorial Foundation for Giving Stuff to Poor People in Exotic Lands and Making Me Feel Good About Myself. Because he already did that: He gave them better computers, better telephones, better music players, etc. In a lot of cases, he gave them better jobs, too. Did he do it because he was a nice guy, or because he was greedy, or because he was a maniacally single-minded competitor who got up every morning possessed by an unspeakable rage to strangle his rivals? The beauty of capitalism -- the beauty of the iPhone world as opposed to the world of politics -- is that that question does not matter one little bit. -- Kevin Williamson

The entire Williamson piece is a great elevator talk in itself.

Yes it is, and Rush made it the focal point of the first hour of his program yesterday. It made for awesome listening (while I bounced around in front of a hay baler in a windstorm, but that's another story.)

I particularly enjoyed KW's description of the "occupy" protesters as "undeniably shortchanged by our government-run cartel education system." What a delightful way to say they are dumbasses!
