Quote of the Day

Fortunately, traveling and speaking took me to audiences full of down-home common sense.  When a reporter raised the question of my looks as more important than anything I could possibly have to say, for example, an older woman rose in the audience.  "Don't worry, honey," she said to me comfortingly, "it's important for someone who could play the game -- and win --- to say: 'The game isn't worth shit.'"

-- Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road, p. 51
