"Television's the number one narcotic we got going on up here in America! Keeps a man idle and stupid. Might as well pump heroin into the airstream. Same difference . . . TV!! Ha!! ... Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?Who Wants To Kiss My Narrow Black Ass? I'd say that's a lot more like it."
Lucius, in Jesus Hopped The 'A' Train
by Stephen Adly Guirgis
"Gossip is cheap and it's low. Don't matter if you live in a big city or a small town, there's always someone looking over the fence ready to wag their chin. And don't think you're above it just cause you're not speaking about your neighbours. Every time you look on a TV set, or on a computer, or in those magazines, looking at who's doing what to who, who's drinking what, who's gone to jail, you're taking part in gossip. You've got to remember: be careful of the stones you throw."
Bob Dylan, Theme Time Radio Hour: Be Careful Of The Stones You Throw
