The Sunday Quote

''A committee is a group of people who keep minutes, waste hours, and create a cull-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled''

Milton Berle (1908-2002) Comment in The New Statesman 1973.

My reaction to the well known comment by that prolific commentator of human behaviour, Anonymous, that camels are horses designed by a committee is that it is unfair to camels.
I learnt to respect camels (often referred to as ships of the desert) during my days travelling in North Africa. Camels, the true aristocrats of the desert are above being designed - clearly they naturally evolved by supreme self determination.
