Question Who the heck is Billy??

"If Rosa Parks had taken a poll before she sat down in the bus in Montgomery, she'd still be standing." Billy

Cool Who is Billy

According to just a tad of Googling, the quote is from Mary Frances Berry.

I am guessing "Billy" is who posted it to quoteworld.org, where it is attributed to him.

worldofquotes.com and thinkexist.com and a number of other sites attribute it to Mary Frances Berry.

Question Billy

Since Mary Frances Berry seems to be more active and community-minded, I tend to think she must have said that quote. It doesn't seem likely it was fitness guru, Billy Banks. (Tae Bo)

Default Who's Carl Zwanzig?

I just had this quote:

Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side, and it holds the universe together
-Carl Zwanzig

Who the heck is Carl Zwanzig? All I could find in a google search is a picture gallery from somebody's party.

Question Who's Carl Zwanzig? You don't know Carl Zwanzig!

Laura, anyone who doesn't even have their own Wikipedia entry must be so obscure as to be unworthy of our recognition. (Though I gotta admit that's a damn good quote about duct tape) However, after a little web searching, the best answer I can come up with is that Carl Zwanzig's highest claim to fame is that he was a vocalist and autoharpist for a band called "Clam Chowder." They are known for their traditional, folk and filk, and have made a number of recordings on an obscure label known as "Bivalve Records." As practitioners of filk, they have naturally played at science fiction conventions.
