Quote of the day: “Maps can endanger freedom.”

In a story in the 3/13/07 edition of the Cape Gazette “Positive Growth Alliance: NEMO lacks balance

Mr. Rich Collins, executive director of the Positive Growth Alliance (PGA), is quoted as saying “Maps can endanger freedom.” This is in reference to the Delaware Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) program which educates municipal officials about the correlation in the percentage of impervious surface, stormwater management and the quality of watersheds that are nearby. Not surprisingly, Mr. Collins runs a pro-property rights group called the Positive Growth Alliance which is a property rights organization, “The PGA stands for effective solutions and gives people the freedom to do what they want.” Here, here.

Ironically, my second favorite quote today compliments this story: “The price of liberty is eternal vigilance,” which is the tag line of the Cape Gazette newspaper.
