Motes 'n Quotes

A quick Zappaquote:
Rock journalism is people
who can't write
interviewing people
who can't talk
for people who can't read.
      - Frank Zappa

Gee, Zap, I'd be more likely to apply
that analogy to SPORTS journalism!

This story appealed to me, and I feel I must share the zen:
ELMIRA, N.Y. - A large ceramic turtle containing a woman's ashes has been recovered after it was accidentally sold for 50 cents at a rummage sale.

When Anita Lewis of Elmira sold the turtle Saturday to a woman with plans to use it as a cookie jar, she didn't know it held the ashes of her husband's late wife.

Terrence Lewis' previous wife had collected turtles and the couple's home was full of them, Anita Lewis said.

She realized her mistake and began a frantic search that led to the Salvation Army Thrift Shop in Horseheads after an anonymous caller's tip to the Star-Gazette of Elmira.

Don't be sweet, lest you be eaten up;
don't be bitter, lest you be spewed out.
~ Jewish Proverb
The price of freedom of religion,
or of speech, or of the press,
is that we must put up with
a good deal of rubbish.
~ Robert Jackson
So much of what we call management
consists in making it difficult
for people to work.
~ Peter Drucker
