From the Civil Rights Museum Sustainability Plan; "Museum Tours" Revenue Past and Projected

Human beings are… of two persuasions,
the first would spend tomorrow what they earn today,
the second would spend today what they hope to earn tomorrow.

Illusions commend themselves to us
because they save us pain and allow us to enjoy pleasure instead.

We must therefore accept it…when they...collide with a bit of reality
against which they are dashed to pieces.

Anticipated 2013.....$375,561

Once off the cliff, there is still hope if you keep running.

By running ever faster you may not fall.

The proposal of any new law or regulation which comes from [businessmen]
ought always to be listened to with great precaution,
and ought never to be adopted,
till after having been long and carefully examined
not only with the most scrupulous, but with the most suspicious attention.

It comes from an order of men whose interest is never exactly the same with that of the public,
who have generally an interest to deceive and even to oppress the public,
and who accordingly have, upon many occasions both deceived and oppressed it.

Adam Smith
Moral philosopher and Father of Modern Economics
