Shorter Isn't Always Better

There were times during the election season when I went on and on about the campaigns beating people senseless with 60(!) second radio ads.

Well, sometimes, shorter isn't always better. It's not radio...and it's got nothing to do with politics. But it for some odd reason, it left me wanting more (which is exactly the point of the ad). HT: Adrants

"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
