Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

The way things ought to be

on September 21, 2006

When I first call up Yahoo to get my e-mail, there are 4 news stories they highlight rolling throughout the day. This afternoon, two stories I found interesting and inspiring. First, the story of billionaire Richard Branson who is giving 3 billion to help us wean off of our dependency on oil to help against global warming. Who knows if global warming is for real, but I like not being dependent on oil!

Then I see that Wal Mart is almost giving away generic drugs.

See, for those who think the government is the be-all and end-all to solve the problems of the world, I say these are two fine examples of the private and business sector doing things to help.
