Quote of the day

Alexander McCall Smith channels Plato, perhaps....

"The problem, of course, was that people did not seem to understand the difference between right and wrong.

If you are running for a political office, you are a politician. If that is too circular for you, try this: If you considered how to frame an issue in order to increase the likelihood of getting elected, you are a politician.
