Phrase of the Day

Phrase of the day: "Rich mosaic."

Lawrence McQuillan, the author of the PRI's "study" of the tort system had the following to say when asked why Michigan's economy wasn't booming since Michigan has such a favorable legal climate:

"The business climate is a rich mosaic," McQuillan said. "It's not just one thing."

Or in other words, if your state's business climate is poor, tort reform won't help turn it around.  But pass it anyway.
