quote/unquote: (Wall St., Mao, Wasilla, Palin )

(Another installment of a continuing series made in St. Louis)

"Worst Crisis Since '30s, With No End in Sight" & "The End of Wall Street" & "Wall Street No Longer Exists"
*--- headlines in The Wall Street Journal Sept. 18 and Sept. 23

"Just because we won the victory, we must never relax our vigilance against the frenzied plots for revenge by the imperialists and their running dogs. Whoever relaxes vigilance will disarm himself politically and lands himself in a passive position."
*- Chairman Mao Zedong, 1949 (see "Mao Seeing Red" portrait by Andy Warhol, above)

"There is no center here. There is no sense of identity. There's nothing to ground the town. In fact, when I first came here, I got lost looking for the town until I realized I was in the town."
* Jim Holycross, native of Oregon and current city planner for the city of Wasilla, Alaska, Sarah Palin's hometown where she was mayor.

"It was so sweet. It was so Wasilla."
*- Sarah Palin, commenting on the '99 wedding she presided over as mayor that took place in the aisles of Wal Mart between two Wal Mart employees
