Today's (Old) Quote of the Day

I love this quote from the late Stephen Jay Gould that caught my eye on Facebook yesterday:

“I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein’s brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.”

Within minutes of spotting that clip I stumble across this picture - and its accompanying story - on Facebook. LabourStart readers have just voted it their Labour Photo of the Year.

If I had any fingernails, I'd dig them into the palm of my hand to remind myself that it's 2009.

Hat tip to MM for the quote.
