I came across the quote of the week. This is from Ron Kirby, the transportation planning coordinator for the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, in an article in The Washington Post about DC’s inability to evacuate people in an emergency. He said:
“You should never try to tell people what they ought to do, because all of their circumstances are different,” Kirby said, “but if you give them very good timely information, they are going to make their own decisions in ways, in general, that are going to be better for them and better for the system as a whole.”
Imagine that. Giving people information and letting them make their own decisions works better than government barking orders. Someone put this guy in charge of Obamacare!
