Quotes

LAE is fortunate that it has serving heads, and lots of education and financial experts on its governing board, says Weeks. "where things have gone wrong with free schools elsewhere, the make-up of the governing body hasn't been right."
Hospital archivist John Weeks said: "this memorial is not to mark the death associated with war but the way in which our hospitals cared for patients during these times."
Contrary to what many believe, says Weeks, default could be good for Argentina. "default serves as the solution to an otherwise intractable problem, an unsustainable foreign debt."
