"Maybe we need a tax credit for the poorest Americans to buy a laptop. Now, maybe that's wrong, maybe that's expensive, maybe we can't do it, but I'll tell you, any signal that we can send to the poorest Americans that says, 'We're going into a 21st century, third-wave information age, and so are you, and we want to carry you with us.'" - Rep. Newt Gingrich, Speaker of the House of Representatives addressing the House Ways and Means Committee, Jan. 1995. [From _New_York_Times_, Jan. 5, 1995, excerpted in _Edupage_, Jan. 8, 1995.]
