Quote of the Day

I've never really found inspiration for story ideas in the news, but I'd say it certainly affects our lives in so many ways.

Maxine Hong Kingston

Paul de Man

I have my cards read every time I pass a tarot-reader booth. I would be so embarrassed to have one of those 900 numbers appear on my phone bill, because I don't know how I would explain it to my business manager. It would almost be like saying, 'Okay, I'm white trash.'
