Surly Curmudgeon

   The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. The former are idealists acting from highest motives for the greatest good of the greatest number. The latter are surly curmudgeons, suspicious and lacking in altruism. But they are more comfortable neighbors than the other sort.

    It's a great subtitle for Ron Bailey's piece on Mars exploration, and the ways it might be accomplished without Uncle Sam's pencil pushers. Because when I think Mars, I think of ways to regulate it.
