Famous quotes containing the words local and/or news:
“The improved American highway system ... isolated the American-in-transit. On his speedway ... he had no contact with the towns which he by-passed. If he stopped for food or gas, he was served no local fare or local fuel, but had one of Howard Johnsons nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon. This vast ocean of superhighways was nearly as free of culture as the sea traversed by the Mayflower Pilgrims.”
—Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
“[In response to this question from an interviewer: U. S. News and World Report described you this way: Shes intolerant, preachy, judgmental and overbearing. Shes bright, articulate, passionate and kind. Is that an accurate description?:]

—Joycelyn Elders (b. 1933)
