Chomskyite Co-Worker Quote of the Day

Raving about "Fahrenheit 9/11" and the Clarke book:

"I know what I feel. I like to read the facts that support that."

Runner up: Boasting about finding a "triumphant" looking picture of Spanish golfer Sergio Garcia to put on page 1 to "rub the faces" of the readers in the fact that the Europeans defeated the Americans in the Ryder Cup. The Spain element was important to him, for some reason; because they bailed out on us in Iraq, I suppose.

Now, people tell me that strident anti-war politicians and entertainment figures are true patriots, with a love of country in their hearts. But I have to judge the ones I don't know in terms of the ones I do.
