We Don’t Need No Stinking Metric System!

Dana Mathewson

Steven Hayward in Power Line:I’ve always been fond of the old line that "There are two kinds of countries in the world: those that use the metric system, and those that have been to the moon.”

Good article -- no, great article, as are all of Hayward's in Power Line.

A NOTE FROM JACK KAMP'

Give a man 2.54 centemeters, he'll want a 1609 meters. It doesn't quite have the same ring to it, does it?
