Quote of the Day (12/21/08)

One could hold the thought that the real function of the Wasp has not been to create Protestantism, capitalism, the corporation, or a bastion against Communism, but the Wasp had emerged from human history in order to take us to the stars. How else to account for the strong, severe, Christian, missionary, hell-raising, hypocritical, ideologically simple, patriotic, stingy, greedy, God-fearing, nature-despoiling, sense-destroying, logic-making, technology-deploying, brave human machine of a Wasp.
--Norman Mailer, Of a Fire on the Moon
