BEST QUOTES FROM THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM: Washington Post Style Section, 2/3: “After chatting with [a protester] a while, this reporter offered her business card. Ward refused it. ‘It’s paper,’ he said. ‘I’m against paper.’” (I note that he had no problem making a big styrofoam globe.)

Best quote, Self-Aware column: Washington Post, 2/3: “U2′s Bono kept a low profile today after on Thursday proclaiming himself a ‘spoiled-rotten rock star’ who loves cake, champagne and the world’s poor.” (If it ever becomes relevant again, I’ll probably post something on the problems with Bono’s–and John Paul II’s–push for debt relief that doesn’t discriminate against dictatorships.)
