“The difference between how a person treats the powerless versus the powerful is as good a measure of human character as I know.”

From out there, we look like stars.”

“There are only two possibilities here: either we have the most evil people on earth living in the United States, or we are doing something dramatically wrong in terms of how we approach the issue of criminal justice.”

They will never be tried, and they will never be released.”

“When libertarians say they are for basic rights, what they are really saying is that they are for treating what liberals consider basic rights as property rights.”

I have purchased seventeen fine negroes and am this day proceeding down the coast to try what I do can there.”

She didn’t treat me fairly and I was her soul sister.”

“No, we don’t treat black males differently than white males. Whatever gives you that idea?

    “I just prefer their straightforward awfulness to Paula’s brand of
    Southern fried bullshit, slopping sugar while screwing over anyone who
    stands in her way.”

    I call it the Sister Bertha Better-Than-You (after a character in an old Ray Stevens song, “The Mississippi Squirrel Revival”), and it’s not just a race thing, it seeps into everything these phonies do. I have great-aunts who will greet you at the family reunion with “It’s so good to see you!” dripping with insincere sweetness. They don’t even bother to remember which one you are, and they’ll be the first to gossip about each other behind their backs, but you know, it is just so goodto see the whole family together like this, don’t you think?

    I don’t recall who said this version, but it’s good advice: “Someone who is nice to you but rude to the waiter is not a nice person.”

    No on the uni. Unagi on the other hand is the bomb.

    They make dark chocolate everything now, and they are universally better than the originals. Only problem is they melt damn fast; the dark chocolate M&Ms shouldn’t be allowed to use the candy’s usual slogan as they totally melt in your hand.

    FWIW, this is why it creeps me the hell out when people are too nice to me, especially strangers, acquaintances, or family and family friends I rarely see. Polite? Fine. Sugary? No.
