Quote of the Day

I wonder what the Maori who killed the last moa said. Perhaps the Polynesian equivalent of "Your ecological models are untested, so conservation measures would be premature"? No, he probably just said, "Jobs, not birds," as he delivered the fatal blow.

-- Jared Diamond, writing about the extermination of the Moa in New Zealand
