    Can anyone post the quote from the game for the Bureaucracy civic?

    I'm at work and was wondering, not that there's any correlation between my place of work and that quote....at all, honest.

    "The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy."

    Unfortunately, I don't recall to whom the game attributed the quote.

    The game simply attributes it's origin as "Unknown"

    In fact, the odds are that this quotation comes from an unknown bureaucrat. O_:-}

    It goes like this.

    "The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy"

    Ian Parberry said it first.

    We learned about him in my Computer Studies class on our section about Algorithms. That quote was in one of his books. I can not remember which one however.
