Default Washington quote

Gambling - or so it would appear from a quick googling.

I agree that it does not seem fair to omit that however.

I'd prefer if the quote were: "Gambling ... is the child of avarice, the brother of iniquity, and the father of mischief."

"They are so filthy and bestial that no honest man would admit one into his house for a water-closet doormat. "
Charles Dickens

I'm dying to know who he's referring to, but I'm not able to find it by a quick internet search.

D'oh!

Wink Newspapers and publishers

Is it not a horrible thing that scoundrel-booksellers should grow rich here [in America] from publishing books, the authors of which do not reap one farthing from their issue, by scores of thousands? And that every vile, blackguard, and detestable newspaper,--so filthy and so bestial that no honest man would admit one into his house, for a water-closet doormat--should be able to publish those same writings, side by side, cheek by jowl, with the coarsest and obscene companions. . . .? I vow before High Heaven that my blood so boils at these enormities, that when I speak about them, I seem to grow twenty feet high, and to swell out in proportion. "Robbers that ye are"--I think to myself, when I get upon my legs--"Here goes!"

Unhappy I'm a bad boy

Thanks for all the info, maradnu. You make me feel like a slacker for not digging a little further on the net.

Default Bad boy?

Not necessarily.

I enjoy googling all manner of things, for all manner of reasons, or no reason at all. (As ferrym found out the one time.)

At one point, the Tampa paper had a quiz of sorts. They'd have a line from a song, book, or movie. I was one of a hand full of people who went over a year without missing any - and some were tough.
