2d Quote of the day - Will and Ariel Durant

Civilization is not inherited; it has to be learned and earned by each generation anew; if the transmission should be interrupted for one century, civilization would die, and we should be savages again.

--Will and Ariel Durant

I include this second quote of the day because events in New Orleans are giving us a hint at what happens when the "transmission" is "interrupted."
