Quote of the day--on poverty

"But I think everyone must realize unless one deals with the question of poorest people of the world, it will not be safe.  It cannot be safe.  Apart from the humanitarian and the moral issue, you cannot have 2 billion people who are trailing the rest of the world so substantially.

--James Wolfehsohn, KBE AO, American financial executive, former, 9th president of the World Bank Group, nominated by then-President Bill Clinton
