Blanche DuBush: I have always relied on the kindness of strangers"
from the play:

(Stanley talking about Blanche) She is as famous in Oriel as if she was the President of the United States, only she is not respected by any party.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044081/quotes

All this talk of entrepeneurs rebuilding New Orleans. Made me think of someone with all the desire, and none of the reality. Oh, I know, they make their own reality. But it still is not our reality. I think some parts of New Orleans will get rebuilt, others won't.

IMHO

1. Excellent allusion!
I started screaming during that part of the adventure in teleprompting last night.

2. Well if the rebuilding of New Orleans
goes even half as well as the rebuilding of Iraq and the WTC, we will end up with billions more spent and nothing to show for it.

3. It reminded me of a great line in Zorro, the Gay Blade
I didn't watch the broadcast, but Ron Leibman as the evil alcalde has a great line: "I have always counted on people being nicer than me, and I have never in my life been disappointed!"

The few bits of *'s address I heard were the usual disjointed ramblings. And why was his voice pitched so high? Did they tweak his meds again?

4. "ChimPee, ChimPee -- You're a pig."
- Another "sophisticated" literary reference from good olde Spiral Hawk*


* I have not ever used felafel in the bedroom, and I have no loofah or oxycontin KINKS; THUS you can be ASSured that everything I write on DU is BRILLIANT.
