Lalu Prasad Yadav

Peter S. Beagle

Never let the horns and woodwinds out of your sight; if you can hear them at all, they are too loud.
It's a very smart, progressive bunch, these people that make country music. They're not country hicks sitting behind a desk with a big cigar giving out record deals and driving round in Cadillacs with cattle horns on the front grille: it's a bunch of really wonderful, open-minded, great people down on Music Row that make this music.

For a long time, I dressed like an idiot. In college, I had a fully shaved head with just two horns. Like, a coxcomb of hair that I would sculpt into two horns. I looked like a crazy person.

As far as favorite 'overall package' record of all time, I'd have to say 'My Girl' by The Temptations.

Pamela Hansford Johnson

It's almost embarrassing, but I do have one trick for taking portraits on commission. I carry one of these little bicycle horns in my pocket, and once in a while, when someone is sour-faced or stiff, I blow my horn. It sort of shatters the barriers. It's silly, but it works.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
