    At this time in American history, we are like ghosts talking gibberish through different dimensions, and stupid men do not make good make good mediums.
    —Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    When you’re growing up in a small town
    You know you’ll grow down in a small town
    There is only one good use for a small town
    You hate it and you know you’ll have to leave.
    —Lou Reed (b. 1944)

    It is an immense loss to have all robust and sustaining expletives refined away from one! At ... moments of trial refinement is a feeble reed to lean upon.
    Alice James (1848–1892)
