    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 Johnson’s nationally branded ice cream flavors, and so many gallons of Exxon.

    Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)

    Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
    —George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
