Well, it might have been the conversation we had about the publisher's clearing house thing when she got one of their mailers the other day. She's always sending back the entries. We got one of 'em and when I got in the truck, I pulled it out of the rest of the mail and told her, "here, you won 5000 a week". We did that back and fourth, "what would you do with the money if...." I guess it's her version of lotto tickets, don't have to buy a ticket to win, though.

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
