(Another in a series from St. Louis)
"Tradition is the illusion of permanence."
*- Woody Allen in "Deconstructing Harry"

"The worst thing ain't so bad, once it happens."
* actor Walter Huston at the end of "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" (see picture above)

"And all the stars that never were
are parking cars and pumping gas..."
*- Burt Bachrach, "Do You Know the Way to San Jose?"

"In the 1980 campaign, we were able to make the establishment, insofar as it is bad, the government. In other words, big government was the enemy, not big business. If the people think the problem is that taxes are too high, and government interferes too much, then we are doing our job. But, if they get to the point where they say the real problem is that rich people aren't paying taxes...then the Democrats are going to be in good shape."
*- Lee Atwater, 1986 (he was the 1988 Republican campaign manager)
