quote of the moment

"If the Pryor of The Richard Pryor Show in 1977 had been a ferocious comic bulldog, not safe to be let out amongst children and the weak, then the Pryor of Pryor's Place and Brewster's Millions had clearly been house-trained, able to sit placidly by as the young ones pulled at his ears — not dissimilar from the character he'd played in The Toy."

I have a l-o-n-g running rant that the average american truly could not care less about WY.  my standard line is the front page of the NYT ryns a headline, "entirety of WY, ID and MT destroyed by yellowstone super volcano."  page 2 reads, "yankees have very real shot at the pennant."

look at this headline from and tell me I'm not right.
