Quote of the Day
Times have not become more violent. They have just become more televised.

If you listen to 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,' by Gil Scott-Heron, that album is dripping with rage.
The last few years I became a lot more into sports. Growing up, the sports I liked were independent sports, like skateboarding. I was really into skateboarding, and not necessarily team televised sports.

Books had instant replay long before televised sports.
I had no idea this thing was televised. Boy, is my face red.
'Dating Game' wasn't social commentary, political analysis, Shakespearean-level drama or even blunt-force comedy. It was just the televised equivalent of meeting someone at a bar.

Kingman Brewster, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
