quote of the day

We've arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements...profoundly depend on science and technology.  We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology.  This is a prescription for disaster.  We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.

--Carl Sagan

Loved Carl Sagan! But, today? All I can think of to say is, "This, too?!"

Sadly, I can't help but agree with Sagan.
