Quote of the Day

"The minor dramatist leads the literary life, and dwells in the world of imagination instead of in the world of politics, business, law, and the platform agitations by which social questions are ventilated. He therefore remains, as a rule, astonishingly ignorant of real life. He may be clever, imaginative, sympathetic, humorous, and observant of such manners as he has any clue to; but he has hardly any wit or knowledge of the world."

-George Bernard Shaw, 1895.

Eerily resonant words in the wake of the very "clever" Mr. Marmalade and Heddatron.
