The Washington Post

The best sentences we read today

--- "'What many people don’t grasp is that there is no such thing as 'not using monetary policy.'"

--- "Leaving aside the dubious victimology—poor Maryville, battered so cruelly by the dark-hearted Kansas City media and their relentless “negative attention”—the paragraph also represents a great big logical problem for anyone who read the Star story, or even the 20-odd inches of stellar Times copy that followed the clunky lede: The whole point of a story of rape allegations dismissed by a political-prosecutorial complex intimately connected to an accused assaulter’s state-legislative relative is that… Maryville never featured any of that simplicity in the first place!"

--- "When asked about the inevitable comparisons between Midnight Red and One Direction, The Artist Formerly Known as Heroin Eyes explained, "We're a bit different because we dance, so it's not like we're better or worse it's just like, how boring would an ice cream shop be if it only had one flavor?"

--- "Any working stiff can eat gelato in front of Archimedes, peer into his stone eyes, and consider how much he looks like old Giancarlo from the post office. "
