Forecast Quotations

Weather forecast for tonight: dark.
George Carlin

You don't need to know this - but here goes: due to some acquired infantilism, I feel compelled to fall asleep listening to the radio. On a good night, I'll push the frail barque of my psyche off into the waters of Lethe accompanied by the midnight newsreader - on a bad one, it's the shipping forecast.

Thomas Sowell

Alan Greenspan

The key to making a good forecast is not in limiting yourself to quantitative information.
