Lethal Quotations

Arrogance, ignorance, and incompetence. Not a pretty cocktail of personality traits in the best of situations. No sirree. Not a pretty cocktail in an office-mate and not a pretty cocktail in a head of state. In fact, in a leader, it's a lethal cocktail.
Graydon Carter

Ted Danson

Snowboarding is an activity that is very popular with people who do not feel that regular skiing is lethal enough.
