“Can we even call it writing these days? When I first started I was a ‘writer’ in that I would fill notebook after notebook up with pencil scribbles. Now, I can hardly write legible cursive. No, these days it should be called typing or word processing. No one writes longhand, and if they do it has to be because they don’t have access to a processor.”
“Most members of the media in this country are all in a state of shock right now. These are the people who have been coming out of the woodwork in support of Hillary in Gala after Gala. And still Trump has connected with more voters having only himself behind the podium.

Make me famous.”
“Maybe I am foolish to believe that people at this level of power have a higher than average level of obligation to the betterment of all mankind.”
“It is guerilla warfare to be sure, cowardly yet effective. These men had a point, they had a message, and their means of spreading it, however controversial, may have been the only method available to them at the time.”
“There is no illuminati meeting every other Thursday down at the corner pub deciding the fate of the poor and the weak.”
“Celebrities are people too. You should admire their art, their contributions… sure. But when one kills themselves it does not automatically make them a hero.”

“it just occurred to me that even though I live in ‘Music City U.S.A.’ I have brought you very little in the world of music. Almost everyone in this city either is directly involved in some way or knows someone who is. We all have demo albums and we all play guitar.
