Quotes of the Day for 11 September 2000 – Cynics
Van is turning editorial control of Quotes of the Day over to me, Gregory Kohs - just for this one day, so don't panic! Besides, Van is authoring MY newsletter, the American Cynic, today. So it's only fair. Today's quotes, appropriately enough, have everything to do with cynicism. Enjoy!
Note: Sadly, the American Cynic has long since ceased to exist.
