Quote of the day

Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is
far better that you fear the media, for they will steal your Honor.
That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in
America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed
at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way
to the poorhouse: Mark Twain.

I love Twain.

Sam Clemens had been a reporter and knew whereof he wrote.

That's true Dave, however there's some question on the list I got this from as to whether Sam actually wrote it. But whoever did, it's a great quote.
