the quote thread

A place for myself to post the comics storyline in prose form, plus a current comic discussion and most likely some random threads.

following the Joe McCarthy theme briefly... here's a quote.

Joseph Nye Welch wrote:Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series
of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

my history class is providing me with some good quotes, it seems. to wit:

Nikita Khrushchev wrote:About the capitalist states, it doesn’t depend on you whether we exist. If you don’t like us, don’t accept our invitations, and don’t invite us to come see you. Whether you like it or not, history is on our side. We will bury you.

"I am the only f^$&ing genius in this industry"

said Uwe Boll of the film industry in a recent online interview.

Now we can't let that ignorant bastard keep running his mouth like that, can we? Check out the online petition to get that idiot to stop screwing up videogame films: http://www.petitiononline.com/RRH53888/petition.html

He's been recorded as saying that if 1 million people sign the petition, he'll retire. I highly suggest you let all of your gaming friends [and those who enjoy movies with a plot other than "hey, let's look at Kristanna Locken's boobs"] know about this important petition. Together we can save movies from that jackass!
