quote/unquote: Didion, Blagojevich, Mencken

(Another in series from Wilson in St. Louis)

"My only advantage as a reporter is that I am so physically small, so temperamentally unobtrusive, and so neurotically inarticulate that people tend to forget that my presence runs counter to their best interests."
*- Joan Didion (pictured), "Slouching Towards Bethlehem" (1967)

"You gotta be careful how you express that and assume everybody's listening, the whole world is listening, you hear me?"
* ILL Gov. Rod Blagojevich, Dec. 4th, on the phone talking about appointing Obama's replacement

"A good politician is quite as unthinkable as an honest burglar."
*- H.L. Mencken
