We don't want your type in here."

How many journalists does it take to change a light bulb?
One to file a report that it's a government plot to deprive the 
poor of darkness.
One to file a report on it being a government programme to bring 
new light to the people.
And one who'll win a Pulitzer prize for reporting the dastardly plot of the electricity company that hired an assassin to break the 
light bulb in the first place.

Why do cowboys write poetry?
Because they're inspired by the moos.


'Curiosity about life in all its aspects, I think,
is still the secret of great creative people.'
Leo Burnett

'The role of a writer is not to say what we all 
can say, but what we are unable to say.'
Ana├»s Nin

'Don't think.  Thinking is the enemy of creativity.  It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy.
You can't try to do things.  
You simply must do things.'
Ray Bradbury
