Quote Me # 17

We may have learned everything we needed to know about life in kindergarten. But you know what? We can learn everything we need to know about the incredibly rude, selfish, infantile country we’ve become by observing the human spokes revolving around the Tonya Harding sociocultural axis. The Greeks reveled in Homeric tragicomedies;the English lived out Shakespearean dramas. But we, America, are the cast of the Kerrigan farce. Is it any wonder we’ve thrown manners, compassion and respect out the window? We’ve become one big self-absorbed nation holding up an ice skate, pointing at a broken lace and blubbering our eyes out.”

–  Triggerfish Twist, Tim Dorsey, 2002
