Sorenson Stories

So the Blue Dog invited me to tag along to a reunion of Sorenson Institue alumni. I went (hey, there was an open bar...who knew?). I'll have a few nuggets to pass on tomorrow.

Mark Warner made an appearance. The crowd went wild. Sean Connaughton was there and we spoke briefly. Nice guy...funny, too.

"You know what the fellow said: In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they also produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love -- they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock." -- Orson Welles, The Third Man

"The graveyards are full of indespensable men" -- Charles de Gaulle

"Oh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys. Nature started the fight for survival and now she wants to quit because she's losing. Well I say, hard cheese!" -- Montgomery Burns

"Don't pretend that you know me...cause I don't even know myself" -- The Who
