Quote of the Day

“The fact is, we recoil at social engineering by the government, but for some reason we accept it by industry. Social engineering is going on every time you walk into the supermarket. The fact that the sweetened cereals are at eye level and the plain, un-reconstructed oatmeal is down by your feet is social engineering – and we’re not offended by that. Yet we’re offended as soon as the mayor says, ‘No, 16 oz. cups.’”

-Michael Pollan (source)
