Today's Quote: Economic Development

"... in many small towns, economic-development planning means laying some sewer in an empty field at the edge of town, putting up a sign along the highway that says Mudville: A Friendly Place To Grow, and sending off one of the old boys to a nearby city to look for a manufacturer thinking about expansion--if it can get twenty years of tax breaks, subsidized utility rates, maybe a free building, and a ready supply of workers who would rather die than join a union and who are hungry enough to work at subsistence wages."
