Quote of the day

George W. Fenton, owner of Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown, W.Va., speaking about proposed tariffs on imported glass:
“I need some relief from government to stay in business, but I’m not sure it is the government’s role to keep me in business.”
You, sir, are a patriot and a hero. Compare this attitude with that of Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) who is also quoted in the article.

Correction: Fenton Art Glass received a $75,000 federal grant in the summer of '06 to upgrade its global competitiveness.
