Word of the Day
- a meat pie that is usually eaten at Christmas in Quebec
The word 'tourtiere' comes from the French tourte, or passenger pigeon.
Quote of the DayThe pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced—by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix.
- Erich Fromm (1900 - 1980), U.S. psychologist.
