It's More About the Journey Than the Destination

'The reason I write the book is not because I know what I want to say to the public. I write the book in order to figure out for myself what I think about the subject.'
--Criminologist and author James Q. Wilson, quoted in a recent L.A. Times profile. You can learn more about his classic book, The Moral Sense, here. This article, from 1982, explains why he's considered the father of community policing and developer of the "broken window" theory of civic disorder.

Great quote. I think that's why I blog, to try to figure out what I really think!
