Quote of the day (so far!)

Woody Allen on the history of civil disobedience:
“A fine example of demonstration was the Boston Tea Party, where outraged Americans disguised as Indians dumped British tea into the harbor. Later, Indians disguised as outraged Americans dumped actual British into the harbor. Following that, the British disguised as tea, dumped each other into the harbor. Finally, German mercenaries clad only in costumes from ‘The Trojan Women’ leapt into the harbor for no apparent reason.”
— from Allen’s “Complete Prose” (1997), p. 72
