Quote of the Day...

Alright... I've often referred to Laurie Anderson's "Odd Objects" (found on her "United States, Parts I through IV" collection), which has the following sonorous declaration:

"Our plan... is to drop... odd objects... on to your country... from the air.

"Some of the objects will be useful... but most of them will just be... odd.

"The idea being they came from a country FREE enough... to think of making them... in the first... place..."

If there was any doubt what she was making fun of, today in the New York Times there was this quote, cut and pasted here verbatim:

"'With a heavy dose of fear and violence, and a lot of money for projects, I think we can convince these people that we are here to help them,' Colonel Sassaman said."

'Nuff said.
