Professor Irwin Corey: 102 years old today.

A few lines from an interview:
In Vegas I was talking about the government when this heckler yelled, "Do you love your country!" I said to the heckler, "What tree are you talking about?" He said, "Your country!" I said, "What tree?" He said, "Cunt! Cunt! Cunt!"

I was the one that coined the expression, "You can get more with a kind word... and a gun, than with just a kind word." Many people thought that Al Capone had said that. Al Capone couldn't even write his first name.

Questions for today's journalists: Are we covering historic news better than our predecessors covered the Wright Brothers and their flying machine?

No surprise here! Beijing REALLY dislikes anything coming close to openess in the Internet.
