Quote of the Day
   "Then you must begin a reading program immediately so that you man
understand the crises of our age," Ignatius said solemnly. "Begin with
the late Romans, including Boethius, of course. Then you should dip
rather extensively into early Medieval. You may skip the Renaissance
and the Enlightenment. That is mostly dangerous propaganda. Now, that
I think about of it, you had better skip the Romantics and the
Victorians, too. For the contemporary period, you should study some
selected comic books."
   "You're fantastic."
   "I recommend Batman especially, for he tends to transcend the
abysmal society in which he's found himself. His morality is rather
rigid, also. I rather respect Batman."
    -- A confederacy of Dunces, John Kennedy Toole
