—Thomas Disch, science fiction writer
“I do hope that in my blundering way through life I may in a small measure defend the dignity of common men and prove of some sustaining power to the suffering souls I meet... I have small faith in any man’s religion if he feels above those who are unfortunate.”
—L. C. Larry Ho Hodgson, Saint Paul mayor and poet
“We are more casual about qualifying the people we allow to act as advocates in the courtroom than we are about licensing electricians.”
