“If we kill all the owls, for example, someday we’ll be up to our ribcages in mice. Nobody seems to relish the thought.”--Address by Tom McCall to the Natural Resources Defense Council, New York City, October 30, 1975.
“I really care about this world. And I understand—as all Americans can or will—that man’s problems are made by man and can be solved by him. We can be roused from our pouting. Man is not all evil; life is not all pointless; the future has not yet been written. We are writing in now, and I hope what we write is a story of love.”--Tom McCall, addressing a land use conference in Denver, May 20, 1975.
